Applications to the 2011/12 round of the Systematics Research Fund are now open.

The Systematics Research Fund (SRF) is designed to provide short-term funding for systematic research.  The Councils of the Linnean Society<http://www.linnean.org/> and the Systematics Association jointly administer the SRF fund.

Typical activities supported include contributions to fieldwork expenditure, the purchase of scientific equipment or expertise (e.g. buying time on analytical equipment), specimen preparation (including the cost of temporary technical assistance), and contributions to publication costs.  Projects of a more general or educational nature will also be considered, provided that they include a strong systematic component. Typical activities not supported include attendance at scientific meetings and contributions to student maintenance or tuition fees.  The fund does not provide payments for bench fees.   Projects already substantially funded by other bodies may be disadvantaged.  For further information see the Systematics Association (www.systass.org<http://www.systass.org>) or the Linnean Society (www.linnean.org<http://www.linnean.org>) website.

Successful projects are selected by a panel of six systematists who represent a wide range of conceptual interests and taxonomic groups. The value of any single award will not exceed £1500.

Applications of all nationalities are welcome.   Closing date for applications is Monday February 13th 2012.  Successful candidates will be informed via email by April 30th 2012
