Brief Description of Duties: 

The Department of Reproductive Sciences, Center for Species Survival of the Smithsonian’s Conservation Biology Institute (SCBI) is proud to announce the availability of the JoGayle Howard Post-Doctoral Fellowship. This training opportunity is for women only. It honors the life and pioneering research of Dr. JoGayle Howard who made significant contributions to understanding the reproductive biology of endangered species, especially wild felids.
Our team is seeking a Post-Doctoral Fellow with the qualifications that embodied JoGayle Howard’s career – enthusiasm, passion, hard work and absolute dedication to high quality science. Research will be in the area of felid reproductive biology, veterinary science and/or nutrition (or a combination).
The fellow will be working in a strong team environment with the opportunity for travel. A modest research allowance will be provided. This 2-year position (with an optional third year) has an annual stipend of $50,000.
A Ph.D. and/or D.V.M. are required. Candidates must have a strong interest in the study of felids and a background in reproductive physiology. We are considering only highly motivated women with outstanding communication skills (written and verbal) and evidence of working effectively with partners.
The Center for Species Survival has laboratories at the 3,200 acre SCBI facilities near Front Royal, VA and at the National Zoological Park in Washington DC. Its multidisciplinary research generates new knowledge to solve high priority conservation problems, especially related to species reproductive fitness, survival and sustainability.
Applicants should submit a curriculum vita with at least three reference contacts and a cover letter of interest via email attachments to Pierre Comizzoli comizzolip@si.edu. The deadline for applications is July, 1 2017.
This opportunity is funded by the JoGayle Howard Revocable Trust.
