The Willi Hennig Society has established an Early Career Travel Award in support of early-career scientists in tenure-track or permanent positions who wish to attend the annual WHS meeting and give an oral presentation in 2022. A maximum number of three awards per annual meeting in the amount of US$1,500 each are made in cash at the annual meeting banquet.
Eligibility: Early career scientists in tenure-track or permanent positions, with documented financial needs. This includes, but is not restricted to, Assistant Professors, Assistant Curators, Assistant Researchers, “Juniorprofessors”, and similar positions, but excludes postdoctoral researchers. Applicants will present an oral presentation at the annual meeting.
Complete applications consist of a CV, a travel budget to justify the proposed expenses and budget justification to outline financial need, and a title and abstract (not to exceed 300 words) of the oral presentation to be presented at the meeting. Incomplete and late applications will not be considered. Awards will be announced approximately two weeks after the application deadline.
Submit your application to Marcos Mirande (mcmirande at gmail dot com), in a single PDF document. The application deadline will often coincide with or be prior to the early-bird meeting registration deadline (approximately two–three months before the meeting), but see the Meetings web-site for details.
The HennigXXXIX deadline is 13 May 2022.
