Society of Systematic Biologists Graduate Student Research Award

The Society of Systematic Biologists (SSB) announces the 2011 annual
Graduate Student Research Award competition. The purpose of these
awards is to assist students in the initiation (first two years)
of their systematics projects and in the collection of preliminary
data to pursue additional sources of support (e.g., Doctoral
Dissertation Improvement Grants from the National Science Foundation)
or to enhance dissertation research (e.g., by visiting additional
field collection sites or museums). Applicants may be from any country,
but must be members of SSB, and are advised to join the Society as
soon as possible to facilitate their applications (to join go to:
http://systbio.org/?q=node/6). Previous awardees may not re-apply,
but previous applicants who were not selected for funding are
encouraged to re-apply. Awards will range between $1,200 - $2000
and approximately seven to ten awards will be made. The list of
awardees below includes examples of successful proposals for you
to download.

How to apply
All application materials must be in electronic format. Applicants
and those writing letters of recommendation are required to use pdf
format, rather than Word or some other application, to minimize
difficulties in file transfer. Applicants should send all materials
(except letters of recommendation) in a SINGLE pdf file. Letters of
recommendation should
be sent separately by the referees in pdf format or in the text of
an e-mail; please include the FULL NAME OF APPLICANT in recommendation
letters.

Applicants must submit

1. a curriculum vitae (one page)
2. brief research proposal including objectives, methods,
significance, and schedule (max. three single-spaced pages including
literature cited and any figures and tables)
3. budget and budget justification (1 page)
4. and arrange for two letters of recommendation; one letter must
be from the student's current graduate advisor.

The research proposal must clearly state the current stage of the
proposed research and the current year and status of the student.
PLEASE INCLUDE APPLICANT'S CONTACT E-MAIL ADDRESS AT THE TOP OF THE
APPLICATION ITSELF. Both Masters and Ph.D. students in their FIRST
TWO YEARS are eligible. Systematics is interpreted broadly to include
questions below and above the species level, molecular and morphological
approaches, and issues of pattern and process. Funding is not limited
to any particular aspect of research, but rather is available for
field, museum/herbarium, and/or laboratory work.

Please email all application materials and queries to SSB Awards
Committee ssb-apps@life.uiuc.edu . IN THE SUBJECT LINE OF THE E-MAIL,
PLEASE INDICATE "Student Research" FOLLOWED BY FIRST INITIAL AND LAST NAME.

To be considered for this year's award, application materials, including
letters of recommendation, must be received electronically no later than
March 31, 2011.
