Overview:

One and two year Fellowships are awarded for research in avian systematics, evolution, and biogeography to be performed in residence at the American Museum of Natural History. These grants include a stipend and a budget that depends on the nature of the research. These Fellowships are highly competitive and normally only one or two are awarded per year. 

The American Museum offers resident Research Fellowships to postdoctoral researchers and established scholars providing opportunities for advanced study in the fields of zoology, paleozoology, anthropology, earth and planetary sciences and astrophysics. Appointments are made for up to two years.
