For outstanding achievements in evolutionary biology (focused on zoology), including zoological systematics, phylogenetics, paleontology, morphology, faunistics or zoogeography, the association Freunde der Zoologischen Staatssammlung München e.V. has the pleasure to announce the 21st R.J.H. Hintelmann Award for zoological systematics. The award has a value of Euro 5,000.- and its target group is young post-graduate scientists. This prize is awarded not only in appreciation of the previous scientific performance of the applicant, but the winner will also be given the opportunity to continue his/her research work in cooperation with the Zoologische Staatssammlung München (ZSM). This may be carried out either by visiting the ZSM or by being provided with ZSM materials for work elsewhere. The 21st R.J.H. Hintelmann Scientific Award will be presented on January 17th 2020 during a ceremony at the ZSM in Munich, where the prizewinner has to provide a short lecture on his/her research topics. Nominations may name any young post-graduate scientist, not yet in a permanent position, with outstanding performance in one or more of the fields mentioned above.
