The Metallinou Postdoctoral Travel Award provides support for postdoctoral fellows to attend and present their research at SSAR’s annual meetings and meet and interact with leaders in the field, which comes at a key time in their careers when they are seeking permanent positions. Awards are open to postdocs from all countries.For more details about the 2019 application, see the following document: Metallinou Award 2019Dr. Margarita Metallinou, a talented Greek evolutionary biologist, received her doctorate in Spain and was on a postdoc in the USA when, in July 2015, she died in a wildlife accident while conducting fieldwork in Zambia, southern Africa. She had been scheduled to present her work at the Society’s meeting later that summer at the University of Kansas. SSAR, together with the Metallinou family, decided that the most fitting and lasting memorial would be to support other postdocs to attend meetings of the Society. We thank members of the Metallinou family and Margarita’s many friends for their most generous support, as well as dozens of other persons who have contributed to the endowment. We especially thank the Trustees of the Carl Gans Fund for their major support.
We wish to grow the Metallinou Postdoctoral Endowment to help a larger number of postdocs in future years. Please inquire with the SSAR Acting Treasurer, Dr. Ann Paterson (email: firstname.lastname@example.org or by post: Department of Natural Science, Williams Baptist College, Walnut Ridge, AR 72476), to make a donation. These are tax-deductible in the USA.
