The Institute for Advanced Study is pleased to announce a new
partnership with IUB repositories to support research in the rich
collections of the Bloomington campus. This program will fund a
short-term summer research fellowship for a visiting scholar or for a
research collaboration between a visiting scholar and an IUB faculty
member, with funding for travel, lodging, per diem, and stipend for the
visitor and a stipend for the IU faculty member. Collaborations with
colleagues from Minority Serving Institutions, community colleges, and
source communities are welcome.

Summer 2015 partner repositories include not only the Indiana University
Paleontology Collection, but also the Archives of Traditional Music, the
Black Film Center/Archive, the IU Libraries, the Glenn A. Black
Laboratory of Archaeology, the Mathers Museum of World Cultures, and the

About the Indiana University Paleontology Collection

The IU Paleontology Collection is public trust research repository for
fossil material. Its 1.3 million specimens document past research
projects and serve as a resource for new synthetic research on
stratigraphy, paleoecology, evolution, and the biotic effects of climate
change.

Our holdings are especially strong for the Paleozoic of North America,
including Cambrian trilobites in the Deiss collection, the late
Ordovician of the Cincinnati Arch, the Devonian and Silurian of the
Midwest, the Carboniferous of North America, and conodonts from the
Rexroad collection.

The Collection has recently undergone reorganization and renovation with
funds from NSF and the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009
(DBI-0846697), the Indiana University College of Arts and Sciences, and
the Department of Geological Sciences.
