Evolutionary, Ecological, or Conservation Genomics (EECG) Research Award

The AGA announces its third year of funding projects in Evolutionary, Ecological, or Conservation Genomics (EECG) for graduate and post-doctoral researchers who are at a critical point in their research, where additional funds would allow them to conclude their research project and prepare it for publication.

These awards are open to any PhD student or postdoctoral fellow who is a member of the AGA at the time of application.

The program is not intended to fund an entire research project, to initiate new research projects, or to provide salary support.  Proposals addressing genome-scale questions, or ecological, evolutionary and conservation genetics questions best addressed with genome-scale data, will be given priority for funding.  Awards are from $5,000 to a maximum of $10,000, awarded to the PI or institution (no overhead is provided). 

Details and application form available here from 1 December 2016
