Murray Black Award
The award will be made annually to members of the Society who may be postgraduate students or in the early years of their animal science careers (less than 2 years post PhD or MSc).
This award recognises Murray Black’s excellent contribution to BSAS and animal science research.
The award is open to all branches of animal science and particularly welcomes proposals that cover the role of domestic and wild animals and their science in the enhancement and maintenance of the rural environment.
The award is focused on participation in research or undertaking a specific short research programmes or other relevant activities that would enhance skills and experiences. The award may be used to add value to existing PhD or masters programmes through additional work. Applicants can seek support to travel to work at places away from their base. The award cannot be used to part fund PhD or MSc programmes or make up unplanned funding shortfalls in relation to any existing main project.
The size of each award will be based on the quality and type of application but will normally be in the range of £500 to £1,500
