Fellowships

Agnese N. Haury Visiting Scholar & Trainee Fellowship

DUE March 6, 2016

These fellowships are provided by the Agnese Nelms Haury Fund (Endowment) for the Laboratory of Tree-Ring Research. The fellowships are intended to foster dendrochronology training of scientists from any country in the world, and to promote research collaborations with faculty, staff, and students at the LTRR. Visitors/trainees may be graduate students, postdoctoral fellows or established scientists. The Fellowships typically lasts one or two months (but could be shorter), and the support will usually cover travel costs to Tucson (and return) and living expenses.

Interested individuals are encouraged to contact a faculty member at the LTRR and to develop a tentative plan and schedule for the visit before submitting an application. The plan should specify potential areas of training or collaborations. For a list of faculty and descriptions of research topical areas see: http://ltrr.arizona.edu/people/faculty, http://ltrr.arizona.edu/research. Special attention will be given to applications pertaining to archaeology, but all areas of dendrochronology will be considered.

Applicants should note that a set of short summer courses (3 weeks) on dendroarchaeology, dendroclimatology and dendroecology will be offered by LTRR in May 2016 and perhaps again in May 2017, which could be an opportune time for novice fellows to visit and participate in a course (see: http://ltrr.arizona.edu/summerschool).

Applications should include a cover letter stating the intent and purpose of the visit to LTRR, tentative schedule for the visit, name of LTRR faculty, staff or students that the applicant may collaborate with, curriculum vitae, names and contact information for three individuals who may be contacted for references, and a tentative budget.

Applications should be sent to Marianne Hamilton via email by March 6, 2016, at:
