See below.  I have organized a Catalysis Meeting at NESCent, and have 
just completed 3 months as a sabbatical scholar.  I would be glad to 
answer specific questions about my experience. - Regards - Roy

*POSTDOCTORAL FELLOWSHIPS IN EVOLUTIONARY BIOLOGY AND RELATED FIELDS*

We are now accepting proposals for Postdoctoral Fellowships at The 
National Evolutionary Synthesis Center (NESCent). We are looking to fund 
innovative approaches to outstanding problems in evolutionary biology. 
Proposals are due December 1. For more information, please see our 
website at https://www.nescent.org/science/proposals.php.

*CALL FOR PROPOSALS - SABBATICAL SCHOLARS AND COLLABORATIVE WORKING GROUPS*

Proposals for Sabbaticals and for collaborative working groups (Working 
Groups and Catalysis Meetings) are now being accepted at The National 
Evolutionary Synthesis Center (NESCent). We are looking to fund 
innovative approaches to outstanding problems in evolutionary biology. 
In particular, proposals that have a clear interdisciplinary focus, or 
involve evolutionary concepts in non-traditional disciplines, are 
strongly encouraged, as are proposals that demonstrate international 
participation and a mix of senior and emerging researchers, including 
graduate students. Proposals for Working Groups and Catalysis Meetings 
are accepted twice a year, with deadlines on June 10 and December 1. 
Proposals for Sabbaticals may be one semester to a full year (deadlines 
June 10 and December 1) or they may be for short-term visits (2 weeks to 
3 months; deadlines on January 1, April 1, July 1 and September 1). 
NESCent is also now seeking to include graduate traineeship to our 
portfolio by offering one-semester fellowships for graduate students to 
pursue research either with a NESCent sabbatical scholar or with a 
NESCent Working Group. For more information, please see our website at 
https://www.nescent.org/science/proposals.php.
