LTRR: The Laboratory of Tree-Ring Research

Agnese N. Haury Visiting Scholar & Trainee Fellowship

These fellowships are provided by the Agnese Nelms Haury Fund (Endowment) for the Laboratory of Tree-Ring Research. The fellowships are intended to foster dendrochronology training of scientists from any country in the world, and to promote research collaborations with faculty, staff, and students at the LTRR. Visitors/trainees may be graduate students, postdoctoral fellows or established scientists. The Fellowships typically will last one or two months, and the support will usually cover travel costs to Tucson (and return) and living expenses during the visit.

Interested individuals are encouraged to contact a faculty member at the LTRR and to develop a tentative plan and schedule for the visit before submitting an application. The plan should specify potential areas of training or collaborations. For a list of faculty and descriptions of research topical areas see: Special attention will be given to applications pertaining to archaeology, but all areas of dendrochronology will be considered.

Applicants should note that a set of short summer courses (3 weeks) will be offered by LTRR in May of each year and these may be a particularly opportune time to visit so that fellows may participate in a course (see: Due to the timing of this call for applications, support for attending summer courses in spring 2010 would be appropriate (but not in 2009).

Applications should include a cover letter stating the intent and purpose of the visit to LTRR, tentative schedule for the visit, name of LTRR faculty, staff or students that the applicant may collaborate with, curriculum vitae, and names and contact information for three individuals who may be contacted for references.

We are not currently soliciting specific proposals for Haury Fellowships for 2011, but we hope to call for applications/proposals later this year for visits in late 2011 or in 2012. We will make announcements about this here on these pages, and also via the ITRDB internet forum.
