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 but strong applications from those at the graduate level have, in the past, been successful. The fellowship will be tenable for one year commencing on a date to be agreed. It will not be renewable.

The closing date for receipt of applications is 31 March 2008. Further information is available from judith.brown@mpls.ox.ac.uk.
