The Schlinger Foundation Postdoctoral Fellowship in Diptera Systematics
The Schlinger Foundation Postdoctoral Fellowship in Diptera Systematics at the Smithsonian Institution, National Museum of Natural History, Department of Entomology, Diptera Unit.

The Diptera Unit of the Smithsonian Department of Entomology (USNM) is pleased to announce the Schlinger Foundation Postdoctoral Fellowship in support of the BioSystematic Database of World Diptera. The recipient will conduct collections-based systematics research on flower flies (Diptera: Syrphidae) and will contribute to the development of the BioSystematic Database of World Diptera as well as other Smithsonian-lead initiatives, such as the Encyclopedia of Life (EoL) and the Consortium for the Barcodes of Life (CBoL).

Flower flies have been selected as a focus of systematic inquiry as they are critical pollinators (a Convention on Biodiversity (CBD) cross-cutting theme), agriculturally important biological control agents, and biodiverse. The group is ready to be harvested in diverse way and will provide a test of the new digital analysis and
dissemination methodologies now available at the Smithsonian.

The fellowship: The fellowship duration is one year with potential renewal for another year. The stipend is $42,000 per year plus benefits. Additional funds up to $5,000 are also available for research expenses and related travel.

The fellowship includes a significant community component (e.g., building and enhancing of the existing Diptera projects (BDWD), collections and global projects (Encyclopedia of Life (EoL) and the Consortium for the Barcodes of Life (CBoL). Information on the Diptera Unit may be found at Diptera Site, on EOL and CBoL.

To apply: The applicant must have a Ph.D. degree, or at least all requirements for receiving the Ph.D. degree must be completed by the announcement date.Applications should be submitted to F. Christian Thompson, Department of Entomology, Smithsonian Institution, P. O. Box 37012, Washington, D. C. 20013-7012 USA. (email).
