Applications for the 2012 L’Oréal Australia and New Zealand For Women in Science Fellowships are now open.
The three $25,000 Fellowships are intended to help early career women scientists consolidate their careers and rise to leadership positions in science. The Fellowships are awarded to women who have shown scientific excellence in their career to date and who have an appropriate research plan that will be assisted by the one-year Fellowship.
An EDG researcher, Dr Eve McDonald-Madden, was one of last year’s fellows. You can find out about her featured research here, or by watching a video. Among other things, Eve talks about some research in which we have collaborated on optimal management and monitoring of populations when their presence is uncertain (Chadès et al. 2008; McDonald-Madden et al. 2011).
