The Cornell Lab of Ornithology invites applications for our Edward W. Rose
Postdoctoral Fellowships. These competitive postdoctoral fellowship awards (<>)
support innovative, independent research by early career scholars of
exceptional promise. Multiple Rose Fellowships are available annually, with
applications due on September 8. All Rose Fellows join a vibrant community
of more than a dozen concurrent postdocs within the Rose Postdoctoral
Program and interact with many other scholars across a wide range of

The Rose Postdoctoral Fellowship awards support individuals pursuing
cutting-edge scholarship, while fostering intellectual interaction with
multiple Lab programs and Cornell scholars. Any area of inquiry related to
the Lab’s mission “to interpret and conserve the earth’s biological
diversity through research, education, and citizen science focused on
birds” is appropriate. Potential applicants are encouraged to learn more
about the Cornell Lab and our formal programs in Bioacoustics, Bird
Population Studies (avian ecology), Citizen Science, Conservation Science,
Communication, Education, Evolutionary Biology, Information Science,
Macaulay Library (animal behavior), Multimedia Productions, and Public
Engagement in Science. Activities involving research and/or outreach
spanning several of these areas are particularly encouraged, and therefore
each postdoctoral scholar may be co-mentored by two senior Cornell
scholars. Projects that foster links to people and units from across
Cornell University are likewise welcome. Potential applicants are
encouraged to contact the most relevant faculty and staff at the Lab to
brainstorm about areas of mutual interest and synergistic projects. We are
especially interested in supporting the independent research of individuals
who can bring new ideas, approaches, and connections to the Lab, while
simultaneously leveraging our existing tools, data, and expertise in
science, education, and communication.

Each Rose Postdoctoral opportunity spans up to 24 months via two
consecutive year-long appointments at the Lab. Located at the Imogene
Powers Johnson Center for Birds and Biodiversity in the 220-acre Sapsucker
Woods sanctuary, the Cornell Lab of Ornithology is a vibrant unit within
Cornell's University’s College of Agriculture & Life Sciences. More than
200 faculty and staff work at the Lab within our 10 mission-driven
programs. Our management and staff are committed to the highest standards
of ethics and excellence in all areas of our work.

These appointments provide a competitive salary, Cornell health and other
benefits, and funds to help support the Scholar’s research and other
professional needs. Start dates are usually flexible within the year
following the application. Interested applicants should visit the Annual
Rose Postdoctoral Fellowship Competition web site (<>) for
more information about the overall Program and about the Rose Fellow
selection process.

The application package consists of a cover letter, CV, two-page research
proposal, pdfs of up to three representative publications, and names and
contact information for three references. Applicants must have received
their PhD before beginning their postdoctoral appointment at Cornell.
Application materials should be sent as a single pdf file to the attention
of Sue Taggart  <javascript:;><

accepted until September 8, 2016. The selection committee is chaired by Dr.
Irby Lovette  <javascript:;><

for Academic Affairs at the Lab.

Edward W. Rose, known by family and friends as “Rusty,” joined the Lab’s
Administrative Board in 1993 and served as its Chairman from 2004 to 2014.
Rusty was a brilliant man who inspired everyone at the Lab, not only
through his infectious laugh but even more by asking tough questions,
expecting excellence, and seeking global impact. Rusty had a deep
conservation ethos which he exemplified both in his own actions and through
his support of the Cornell Lab and kindred institutions. He was among the
Lab’s most enthusiastic promoters of early career scientists, and he always
relished learning about their discoveries and accomplishments. Rusty passed
away in January 2016, but his legacy endures in many contexts, including
the Edward W. Rose Postdoctoral Fellowship Program which brings together
the Lab’s entire postdoctoral community. Through the generosity of Rusty
and his wife Deedie, together with that of fellow board members Larry and
Nancy Fuller, Russ and Carol Faucett, and Imogene Powers Johnson, the Lab
shall award multiple Edward W. Rose Postdoctoral Fellowships annually.

Cornell University is an innovative Ivy League university and a great place
to work. Our inclusive community of scholars, students and staff impart an
uncommon sense of larger purpose and contribute creative ideas to further
the university's mission of teaching, discovery and engagement. Located in
Ithaca, NY, Cornell's far-flung global presence includes the medical
college's campuses on the Upper East Side of Manhattan and in Doha, Qatar,
as well as the new Cornell Tech campus to be built on Roosevelt Island in
the heart of New York City.
