The American Society of Primatologists is inviting applications for the Dr. Deborah Moore Memorial Grant for Early Career Primatologists.
In addition to her own battles with breast cancer, Canadian primatologist Deborah Moore often traveled alone early in her career working with chimps in Tanzania and later with bonobos in the rain forests of the Democratic Republic of the Congo. As a result, Dr. Moore was acutely aware of the challenges facing early-career researchers seeking to secure funding to support primatological studies without the security of a permanent academic position.
Through the Moore Memorial program, a single grant of $2,000 will be awarded to an exceptional early-career researcher who demonstrates his/her passion for and dedication to the field of primatology through original research on primates in their natural environment.
To be eligible, applicants must have a PhD that has been awarded within the last five years and must not be in a tenure-track or tenured position.
See the American Society of Primatologists website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
