The World Federation for Culture Collections invites applications from
young microbial taxonomists for the WFCC Skerman Award for Taxonomy. The
Award was established to honour the contribution made by Professor V. B. D.
Skerman to bacterial taxonomy, to the establishment of the WFCC World Data
Centre on Microorganisms, and to the development of the WFCC.

The aim of the Award is to encourage taxonomic research by young
microbiologists and to reward excellence in taxonomic research and
significant contributions to the discipline.

recipient will also receive a certificate of the Award.
