Un trabajo bien chulo en Panamá

Nos ha llegado información del Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute para contratar investigadores para su centro en Panamá. Os adjuntamos la información (Suena que muy bien...)

The Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute (STRI), headquartered in the Republic of Panamá, is seeking world-class scientists to establish research programs in any current field of marine or terrestrial research, working anywhere in the tropics. These fields include biological sciences, anthropology, archaeology, paleontology, geology, and soils science. Ideally, research initiated by the successful applicants will complement existing programs (see http://www.stri.org ). We are especially interested in research on vertebrate biology; anthropology and archaeology; paleontology; and climate change.

Panamá and adjacent regions of tropical America are rich in terrestrial and marine habitats, archaeological sites and geological deposits. STRI maintains sophisticated research laboratories, a library, and support centers, in Panama City, as well as diverse facilities for field research throughout the tropics. A 100¹ vessel is available for marine and coastal
research. STRI scientists maintain cooperative research programs with a world-wide network of institutions. Opportunities for mentoring young scientists are available through a vigorous fellowship program, and formal teaching is possible through programs with affiliated universities.

Applicants should have a Ph.D. degree and postdoctoral research experience in their fields. Interested candidates should submit a summary of research accomplishments and interests, curriculum vitae, five significant reprints, and the names and contact information of three potential referees. Annual salary is commensurate with experience. Laboratory set-up and
relocation expenses are provided. Housing and family education allowances may apply. Spanish-English bilingual education is available in some Panamanian schools, which follow international curricula and standards. Review of applications will begin in April 2008. Please send applications electronically to the Director of STRI, c/o Ms. Luz Latorraca, Office of Human Resources at: LatorraL@si.edu. Address inquiries to Dr. William Wcislo, Chair, Search Committee at: WcisloW@si.edu.
