The Bamfield Marine Sciences Centre announces a new round of competitive
research grants for research to be conducted at BMSC. We anticipate
awarding up to $10,000 in 2013.
The grants are to cover the costs of research while at BMSC. This
includes housing, lab fees, boat costs, and research services. Food,
consumables, and travel to BMSC are excluded.
Criteria for selection will favour:
Researchers new to BMSC
Researchers early in their career
Researchers without other research funds
Researchers supporting graduate students or postdoctoral fellows to
work at BMSC
A proposal that is likely to be successful in producing published work
A well-defined work plan and budget
Research conducted outside the June-August peak demand period
Researchers are reminded that:
All research using craniates (all vertebrates plus hagfish and
lamprey) or cephalopods must have animal care approval from their home
institution AND from BMSC. Work with invertebrates requires a BMSC
Animal Use Protocol.
BMSC maintains a long-term collections database. All organisms
collected while working at BMSC must be recorded in the database. This
is part of a long-term strategy to provide digital records to the
BMSC adheres to all CCAC, WHMIS, CNSC, and WorkSafe BC standards.
Work conducted on First Nations lands requires prior permission.
