Dear ESEB Members,

Each year the European Society for Evolutionary Biology (ESEB) distinguishes an outstanding young evolutionary biologist with a prize named after John Maynard Smith (1920 - 2004), eminent scientist, great mentor, author of many books on evolution, and a former President of ESEB.


The prize is open to any field of evolutionary biology. The candidates for the 2024 prize normally must have begun their PhD study after January 1, 2017. In addition, nominees more than 7 years from the start of their PhD will be considered if they have had career breaks taken for family, caring or health reasons; the nature of the reason must be given. Self-nominations are welcome.
Documents supporting a nomination should be sent as a single PDF file to Ute Friedrich at the ESEB office <off...@eseb.org>. If you are nominating someone, send a letter of support for the nomination directly to Ute Friedrich and ask the candidate to send a brief description of the candidate’s contributions to the study of evolution, the candidate's CV and list of publications (indicating three most significant papers), and a short description of current and future research plans from the candidate (2 pages maximum) in a single pdf file. If you are self-nominating, send the same documentation mentioned above to Ute Friedrich and find a colleague to write a support letter for your nomination (please note that this person should directly send the letter to Ute Friedrich).

Nominations and letters of support should arrive no later than Monday, January 15, 2024. Please take care to limit the size of attachments (total < 10 MB) in any one email.

The nomination committee, chaired by the ESEB Vice President Josefa González, will evaluate the nominations and inform the winner approximately by the end of February 2024.

The prize winner is expected to attend the next Evolution joint meeting in July 2024 in Montreal, Canada or alternatively the ESEB congress in August 2025 in Barcelona, Spain, where he or she will deliver the 2024 John Maynard Smith Lecture. The Society will cover registration, accommodation, and travel expenses (economy fare). The JMS Prize comes with a monetary prize of 2500 €, the invitation to write a review for the Journal of Evolutionary Biology, and the possibility of a Junior Fellowship of 6 months at the Institute of Advanced Study in Berlin, Germany. For more information on the Institute of Advanced Study see wiko-berlin.de/en/.

Previous winners of the JMS Prize are listed at the ESEB web site: eseb.org.
