EOL Rubenstein Fellows Competition
Richard Allen, a Presidential Management Fellow with the Encyclopedia of Life (EOL) working out of the National Museum of Natural History in Washington, DC, contacted me to help spread the word about an opportunity for early career folks and mentors in the EOL Rubenstein Fellows Competition http://www.eol.org/content/page/fellows, whose deadline has been extended to 30 Sept. 2010.  Please help spread the word to those who might be interested in this great opportunity!


Reviewers Needed
Tanya Dewey, the Fellows Coordinator, is also looking for reviewers of the applications in the following disciplines: 

conservation biology
invasive species
fish (bony, lobe-finned, sharks and rays, anything!) crustaceans algae cnidarians sponges or, basically, any invertebrate group!

Reviewer commitment would be to review up to 10 proposals and provide comments.  Proposals are 2 pages plus supporting documents and the reviews would take place in October.  

Selection Committee
If you would like to be on the selection committee, a bit more work would be involved, requiring more reviews and a half day meeting to make final decisions.  Contact Tanya for additional information tdewey at eol.org.

I hope you will consider encouraging a promising young professional to apply for this fellowship and/or volunteer to take part in the review process!


If you build castles in the air, your work need not be lost;
that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them.
