The Alfred P. Sloan Foundation is pleased to announce the fourth year
of its postdoctoral research awards programs for scientists interested
in molecular studies of evolution.


Evolution has played a central role in the biological sciences since
the time of Darwin.  Within the past decade, it has become possible
for the first time to unravel the millions of years of evolutionary
history encoded within the genomes of living species.  The Sloan
Foundation believes that although the tools of molecular biology offer
exciting possibilities for expanding scientific knowledge about
evolution, there are too few scientists trained in the complexitites
of both evolutionary and molecular biology.  This postdoctoral awards
program is intended for scientists interested in developing relevant
interdisciplinary skills.   We particularly wish to encourage
postdoctoral molecular biologists moving to laboratories devoted to
evolutionary biology, and of evolutionary biologists to laboratories
of molecular biology.

Recipients for up to ten of these awards will be slelected by an
advisory committee: W.M. Brown, M. Goodman, L. Hood, J.A. Lake, P.J.
Regal, and A.C. Wilson.

Awards will support up to two years of research work at a department
or laboratory in the US or Canada selected by the applicant.  The
principal selection criterion will be the potential of the applicant
and the proposed porstdoctoral rsearch and training plan [...].
Stipend is $25,000 plus $10,000 per year to the sponsoring institution
with the understanding that reasonable research expenses of the Fellow
will be supported from these funds at the discretion of the senior
scientist.  An institution may request overhead of up to 15% of the
direct costs.
