We strongly encourage applicants in disciplines including ecology, anthropology, paleontology, paleoecology, evolutionary biology, molecular phylogenetics, biogeography, animal behavior, neurobiology, soils sciences, and physiology of tropical plants and animals.

Research should be based at one of the STRI facilities; proposals that include comparative research in other tropical countries will be considered.
