Hewitt Mobility Award

4 Novembre 2019 , Rédigé par Bioécologie Publié dans #Thèses - Post-doc - Emploi - Bourse

Closing date: Friday, 17 January 2020.


The award is open to PhD students or postdoctoral scientists who are, at the closing date for applications, within 6 years of the start date of their PhD and ESEB members. In addition, applicants will be considered who are more than 6 years from the start of their PhD if they have had career breaks, worked part-time, or for other reasons have not worked continuously. Applicants who have previously received a Godfrey Hewitt mobility award are not eligible. The maximum single award will be 2000 Euros. It must be used to support fieldwork or a period of research at a lab that you have not previously visited. There is no restriction on the country of residence or nationality of the applicant. A report will be required by 30 April 2021, by which time the funds must have been used.

Application procedure:

Your application should be sent as a single PDF file to Ute Moniatte at the ESEB office, office@eseb.org. It should include your name, current status and institution, your PhD start date, your ESEB membership number, a description of the work to be carried out (maximum 500 words), an outline budget with brief justification (maximum 100 words) and a signed statement from your PhD supervisor or postdoctoral adviser (maximum 100 words) explaining why the work cannot be funded from your home institution or your proposed host institution.

Applications will be considered by a committee chaired by Mike Ritchie. The aim will be to announce decisions before the end of March 2020. In previous rounds, success rates have been between 20 and 40%.
The committee will consider the following key criteria:
1. The value of the proposed mobility in terms of its expected output and impact on the applicant's career. The committee prefers projects that are:
a. Not a core component of the applicant's existing PhD or postdoctoral project, but a new venture.
b. Clearly based on the applicant's own initiative
c. Likely to be completed and have definable output within the award period
d. Have the potential to lead to larger future projects or to enhance the applicant's career in evolutionary biology
2. The need for the GHM award, i.e. the potential for the funding provided by ESEB to make a difference, in relation to resources already available through the home or host institution.
Please endeavour to address these points in your application.
Best wishes,
Ute Moniatte
