Graduate Student Prize 2014 - Winner announced!

JEB Prize 2014

The Journal of Evolutionary Biology & the European Society for Evolutionary Biology are delighted to announce that the winner of the inaugural 2014 graduate student prize for a paper published in JEB is Ellie Harrison, for her paper Sex drives intracellular conflict in yeast. This paper arose from her PhD studies at Imperial College, London, with Austin Burt, Craig MacLean and Vasso Koufopanou. Ellie will formally receive the award at the 2015 congress in Lausanne.

The standard of papers entered to the competition was very high, and runners up were Kay Lucek and Sean Lee. The competition now becomes an annual event, and we are also very happy to announce that it will be named the Stearns Graduate Student Prize after Stephen Stearns, who did so much to establish both the journal (including serving as first Editor) & ESEB.
