Dear all,
this is not strictly morphometric but it could be on a morphometric project and looks like a wonderful opportunity for early post-docs. I've asked a few more details about eligibility. Here they are:

"The program is open to all nationalities and there is no particular age limit however the program is dedicated to early-career scientists who have obtained there PhD and who have at least one first author publication (postdocs, junior group leaders, lecturers, assistant, associate and junior professors) who have no longer than five years their own group. The Fellowship is open to all life sciences disciplines. Information about regular Fellowships at the Wissenschaftskolleg can be found here";

I would not miss the chance to try (if I wasn't too old!). Good luck.

The College for Life Sciences, a junior program of the Wissenschaftskolleg zu Berlin (Institute for Advanced Study), offers young life-sciences scholars from around the world an opportunity to take a break from the lab and gain time to work and develop their own projects and immerse themselves in an intellectually and culturally diverse environment.

Each year the Wissenschaftskolleg welcomes internationally recognized senior as well as promising junior scholars in all fields of knowledge, including the humanities, the social sciences and the arts and we invite you to become part of this "learning community". Our goal is to promote a kind of science that transcends disciplinary boundaries and goes beyond established issues and approaches.

Through the College for Life Sciences we promote scientists at the beginning of their career, i.e. postdocs, junior group leaders, lecturers, assistant, associate and junior professors.

The fellowships are intended for residencies of 3-6 months during the academic year 2018/19, i.e. September 2018 - June 2019.

* Three to six months' residency at the Wissenschaftskolleg in Berlin
* A full stipend based on your previous salary
* Studio accommodation on campus
* Freedom to pursue a project of your choice
* Insight into new areas of knowledge and research cultures
* Integration into a unique international community of Fellows
* Access to Berlin's excellent scholarly and scientific community
* Access to the Wissenschaftskolleg's outstanding library and IT services

We do not offer any lab space. For more details please visit: <>

Please apply by January 7, 2018 with a project outline (about 1000 words), a letter stating your motivation for wishing to obtain a fellowship (about 500 words), your complete curriculum vitae, and a list of your publications here: <>

You are completely free to choose the project that you will pursue at
the Wissenschaftskolleg; we impose no thematic presettings whatsoever.

You must have obtained your doctorate by the start of your fellowship, and we also require that you have at least one lead-author publication in a peer-reviewed journal. There are no restrictions regarding your discipline of origin in the life sciences, nationality, or age etc. Applications from scientists working at institutions in Berlin cannot be taken into consideration. If you have been a principal investigator for longer than five years, though, you are advised to apply for a regular fellowship at the Wissenschaftskolleg.
