Dear Colleagues,

The Encyclopedia of Life <http://www.eol.org/> (EOL) is now accepting 
applications for its 2012 EOL Rubenstein Fellows 
<http://www.eol.org/content/page/fellows> competition.

This international program seeks to support and extend the impact of 
original biodiversity research by postgraduates, graduate students, and 
other scientists, and to tap into the knowledge and expertise of late 
career and retired scientists. EOL Rubenstein Fellows funds provide 
partial support for up to one year so that biodiversity research, 
databases, and media can be effectively translated into rich, online 
resources available through the Encyclopedia of Life. Fellows are 
encouraged to engage in collaborative and synthetic work with a 
community of colleagues. EOL Rubenstein Fellows also help EOL develop 
effective strategies for engaging and supporting the scientific community.

Please note that in the 2012 program, research mentors are not required, 
and the program is not limited to early-career applicants. For more 
information on the program, and to apply online, please 
visithttp://www.eol.org/content/page/fellows.

*Applications must be submitted via the online submission form no later 
than 16 September 2011, please see call details and the online form for 
details.*

Questions regarding the EOL Rubenstein Fellows competition should be 
directed to the EOL Fellows Coordinator at eol.fellows at gmail.com 
<mailto:eol.fellows at gmail.com>.

Please feel free to share this announcement with anyone who may be 
interested in this opportunity.

Thank you,

The EOL Team
