George A. Bartholomew Award. Each year the Division of Comparative Physiology and Biochemistry awards a prize to a young investigator for distinguished contributions to comparative physiology and biochemistry or to related fields of functional and integrative biology. Eligible candidates are those who have completed their doctorate within the past seven years and who are members of SICB. Candidates for this award may apply themselves or they may be nominated; all candidates will be evaluated equally. Applicants should submit a short description of their work, selected reprints, and curriculum vitae to Dr. Sheila Patek, the Chair of the Award Committee. Three letters of recommendation should be solicited from colleagues who know of the nominee's work. Nominators must arrange for these same materials to be sent to Dr. Patek, except with only two additional letters of recommendation. The person chosen as the recipient of this award will be invited to present a special address at the 2015 SICB Meeting in West Palm Beach, FL. In addition to a cash prize, the recipient will be reimbursed for expenses incurred to attend the meeting. Please send applications/nominations for this award to Dr. Patek at Sheila.Patek@duke.edu . The deadline for nominations is Friday, 12 September 2014.
