UNEP/CMS Thesis Award - Call for Applications
>Bonn, July 2010 - The UNEP/CMS Thesis Award on Migratory Species
Conservation, sponsored by Lufthansa, is now open for applications
until April 2011. The award of €10,000 (c. US$ 12,850) will be made at
the 10th Meeting of the Conference of Parties to CMS (COP10) in Norway
in November 2011, in affiliation with the Zoologisches
Forschungsmuseum Alexander Koenig (ZFMK) in Bonn. The Secretariat of
the Bonn Convention on Migratory Species advertises this award to
promote scientific research and conservation of migratory species, as
defined by the Convention.
The thesis should provide new data and insights into the biology and
ecology of migratory species or external factors disrupting their
migration patterns. Research results must be applicable to
conservation measures to the benefit of migratory species.
Entries for the COP 10 Awards are now invited with a closing date of
15 April 2011. A licensed educational institution must have accepted
the study as a Ph.D. or doctoral thesis. All theses accepted during
the period May 2008 - April 2011 may be submitted.
From all applications, eight theses will be short-listed by an
advisory board of twenty international experts, covering different
regions and animal groups. Referees will not see any personal data,
such as the candidates’ address, email, home institutions or names of
supervisors. Pre-selection is based only on abstracts and publications
(if available). In addition, candidates should outline the relevance
of their work for migratory species conservation in a short statement
(max. 300 words).
Short-listed candidates have to submit three hardcopies for detailed
review by two experts. A final Jury, consisting of eight scientists
and conservationists will meet in Bonn, in August 2011, to nominate
the winner. Their decision is based on the expert reviews, the
candidates’ statements, and the Jury’s assessment of the potential for
migratory species conservation. The Jury’s decision is final.
Submitted hardcopies are not returned, but will remain in the
libraries of the CMS Secretariat and the ZFMK. Bibliographic data and
English abstracts of all theses will be transferred and permanently
stored within the Global Register of Migratory Species (GROMS)
The winner should be willing to make his/her original data widely
accessible through the CMS Information System and the GROMS database
(except sensitive data). The Secretariat and the ZFMK will possibly
provide support to generate appropriate data repositories and related
metadata, as well as online and/or hardcopy publication of the
