[Apologies if duplicated announcement; feel free to disseminate to additional venues.]
Greetings, We would like to draw your attention to two Paleontological Society grants for early career paleontologists with upcoming deadlines, the Arthur James Boucot Research Grant and the Norman Newell Research Grant. These grants support original research to postdoctoral students, assistant professors (pre-tenure), and other early-career paleontologists associated with universities, institutes, and academies of science or equivalent institutions. The deadline for both is Feb. 1, 2018. The Arthur James Boucot Research Grants support research on the morphology, taxonomy, and biostratigraphy of any taxa, preferably with some combination of these approaches and a significant fieldwork component. Research focused on modeling studies that rely on fossil or modern databases will not be funded. The Norman Newell Research Grants complement the Arthur Boucot grants, and preference is therefore given to research projects in areas not covered by the Arthur Boucot grant topical areas. Applications are encouraged from anywhere in the world, except those from countries with economic or trade sanctions imposed by the U.S. Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC). Detailed instructions, proposal templates, and instructions for two letters of recommendation are available at paleosoc.org/grants-and-awards/#professionalgrants If you have questions, please contact the Chair for each grant: Dr. Sally E. Walker (swal...@gly.uga.edu) for the Arthur Boucot grant and Dr. Phil Novack-Gottshall (pnovack-gottsh...@ben.edu) for the Norman Newell grant.
