Applications open for 2022 Stengl-Wyer Scholars Program


The College of Natural Sciences is pleased to announce that it is now accepting applications for the 2022 Stengl-Wyer Scholars Competition!

Recent Ph.D.s are invited to apply for distinguished postdoctoral positions to study the diversity of life and/or organisms in their natural environments at The University of Texas at Austin (UT), one of the top campuses in the country for this area of research. Funded by the Stengl-Wyer Endowment, the Stengl-Wyer Scholars Program provides up to three years of support for talented postdoctoral researchers in the broad area of the diversity of life and/or organisms in their natural environments. Scholars may study any groups of organisms, at levels from genes to populations to communities to ecosystems, and may use any combination of approaches. Scholars will:

  • conduct cutting-edge research over three years;

  • have access to the outstanding core facilities at UT, including field stations, natural history collections, computational, imaging, and biomolecular facilities; 

  • reside locally and have a regular work space and presence on the main UT campus;

  • primarily focus on research, but in one of the three years, also implement a teaching or outreach effort related to their interests and career goals;

  • participate in biweekly meetings (luncheons) with other Stengl-Wyer Scholars, Fellows or guests; and

  • receive career mentorship.

Scholars are expected to be independent and propose their own research project. Applicants should identify one or more faculty members from UT’s College of Natural Sciences (CNS) who will provide laboratory space and serve as mentor. Scholars will be encouraged to interact broadly and collaborate with other faculty, postdocs, and graduate students at UT. 2022 Scholar recipients will receive the following:

  • $68,000 annual salary plus UT benefits
  • $10,000 annual allowance for research and travel expenses
  • Up to $3,000 relocation expenses
