Call for full proposals for NESCent courses (due July 10)

The National Evolutionary Synthesis Center (NESCent) recently had an open call for suggestions for new 1-2 week summer courses to be offered at our center in Durham, NC. This open call was followed by open, anonymous voting to collect feedback from the evolution community on perceived need/value of the proposed courses. See the top vote-getters here.

We appreciate all of the enthusiastic responses we received, and are now soliciting full proposals. While the five topics listed at the link, above, are of particular interest to us (based on community voting) anyone is welcome to submit a full proposal to deliver a course on any evolutionary topic.

Full proposals are due by July 10th, 2010.

For information on how to prepare and submit a full proposal, see

NESCent also co-sponsors existing short courses. If you currently teach a short course and would like to apply for NESCent support to cover instructor expenses or fellowships for underrepresented minority students, please see Applications for co-sponsorship are also due by July 10th, 2010.
