Applications are being invited from qualified candidates for the Field Museum Bass Senior Visiting Fellowship 2020. The aim of this fellowship award is to provide support for long term visits to work at the Field Museum to collaborate with Museum faculty on specific research projects.
They encourage projects that focus on one or more areas of research in Life Sciences, Social Sciences, and Earth and Planetary Sciences; foster collaboration among individual research programs; and have an interdisciplinary component. Every project must lead or contribute to peer-reviewed, scientific publications. They will also prioritize candidates that complement existing expertise at the Field Museum. The Science and Scholarship Funding Committee will review applications scientific merit, interdisciplinary and collaborative aspects, and congruence with the research and collections strengths of the Museum.
If successful with your application, you could get a support between $8,000 and $12,500 which can serve as a stipend for living expenses in the Chicago area while still receiving salary from the home institution.Table of Content
