Scholarships and Prizes 2008:
Varley-Gradwell Travelling Fellowship in Insect Ecology
Applications are invited for the Varley-Gradwell Travelling Fellowship in Insect Ecology. The 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 post-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.
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, MPLS Divisional Office, 9 Parks Road, Oxford OX1 3PD, by 31 March 2009 (e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org).
