Hochman Research Award

Awards are available to undergraduate and graduate (Masters and Ph.D.) students for research in organismal biology in which the capture of primary genetic data is necessary for the project. Applicants must be currently working under the supervision of a faculty member affiliated with the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology Biological Sciences at the University of Tennessee – Knoxville. Examples of research that will be considered are those studying population genetics, biodiversity assayed using genetic tools, systematics and taxonomy, studies involving hybridization or different ploidy levels, genetic drift, introgression, speciation processes, and others. Proposals relying on secondary uses of genetic data created by others, such as modeling or mining published genomic data, will not be considered.
