VARLEY-GRADWELL TRAVELLING FELLOWSHIP IN INSECT ECOLOGY

Applications are invited for the Varley-Gradwell Travelling Fellowship in Insect Ecology. A travelling fellowship, which may be of up to £2,000 in value, will be awarded for the support of fieldwork, travel, and other activity in the field of insect ecology. Applications are judged on their practicality and on their potential to make a contribution to insect ecology. Preference will be given to those in their early postdoctoral years. The fellowship will be tenable for one year commencing on a date to be agreed. It will not be renewable.

Applications, including a curriculum vitae and a research proposal, should be sent to Mrs Judith Brown, Secretary to the Board of Management for the Varley-Gradwell Travelling Fellowship in Insect Ecology, Life and Environmental Sciences Divisional Office, 2 South Parks Road, Oxford OX1 3UB (telephone: Oxford (2)82464, e-mail: Judith.Brown@admin.ox.ac.uk), by 31 March 2004. The research proposal should include a budget and should not exceed two sides of A4 in length.

Applicants should give the names and addresses of two referees. In the case of graduate students, one of the referees should be the supervisor.

Applicants are asked to note that, if large numbers of specimens would result from the work, the cost of follow-up work should be shown in the budget, and details given of how, and by whom, they would be identified.
