SABI aims to develop a representative community of systematic biologists- well supported by government and society- addressing exciting and important issues relevant to South Africa's rich biological heritage.
SABI’s funding and its activities are therefore focused around four thrusts including research, education and training, public understanding of science, and infrastructure.
This call for applications pertains to the research thrust of SABI.
Applications dealing with research on animal (excluding humans)/plant/fungi/protozoa and microbes (bacteria and viruses) systematics will be considered on a competitive basis for funding in 2010.
The research must primarily focus on groups occurring in South Africa.
To qualify for SABI funding in 2010, research applications must meet the following hurdles:
In addition, applications will be assessed according to a range of criteria relating to the track record of the applicant, scientific merit of the application, issues of equity and redress, collaborative efforts, and the potential impact of the research.
Funding will be allocated on a competitive basis but will take cognizance of strategic priorities for equity and redress issues (i.e. race, gender and age).
All applications must be submitted via the NRF’s Interim Solution
Deadline: 31 August.
