The Australian Government is inviting applications via a targeted competitive process to apply to contribute towards outcomes under the Department of the Environment and Energy’s Program 1.2: Science, Information and Research commencing in the 2020-21 financial year.
The Australian Biological Resources Study National Taxonomy Research Grant Program provides grants for research into taxonomy and systematics and to support the training and/or recruitment of taxonomists.
The program is the only grant program in Australia that is targeted towards the support of research into taxonomy, to:
- improve our knowledge of the Australia biota through targeted taxonomic research
- increase funding for taxonomy through enhanced co-funding opportunities
- build Australia’s taxonomic capacity by supporting tertiary research training and early career researchers.
Benefits of the program include:
- increased support for students and early career researchers (including provision for retired taxonomists to mentor younger researchers through support for non-salaried researcher positions)
- provision for major, national-scale investigations incorporating multiple researchers and institutions.
