The Encyclopedia of Life (EOL) is now accepting applications for its
2012 EOL Rubenstein Fellows competition.
This international program seeks to support and extend the impact of original biodiversity research by postgraduates, graduate students, and other scientists, and to tap into the knowledge and expertise of late career and retired scientists. EOL Rubenstein Fellows funds provide partial support for up to one year so that biodiversity research, databases, and media can be effectively translated into rich, online resources available through the Encyclopedia of Life.
Fellows are encouraged to engage in collaborative and synthetic work with a community of colleagues. EOL Rubenstein Fellows also help EOL develop effective strategies for engaging and supporting the scientific community.
Please note that in the 2012 program, research mentors are not required, and the program is not limited to early-career applicants.
