Presidents' Award for Distinguished Contributions to Psychological Knowledge
The Award is given as a mid-career recognition of the achievements of those who are currently engaged in research of outstanding quality. As a general guide, mid-career would normally be expected to be within 10-15 years (early mid-career) to 20-25 (late mid-career) years post PhD. Career breaks would be taken into consideration within these parameters. Candidates must normally be resident in the UK but need not be existing members of the Society.
A nomination statement clearly stating the grounds for the nomination should be sent to the Chair of the Research Board c/o the Leicester Office. A CV need not be included but may be requested directly from the nominee once a shortlist has been agreed by the Award Subcommittee. Nominators must be members of the Society.
Advice on what to include within a nomination statement:
- The nomination statement is important. The Committee use this to assess the contribution of the candidate.
- Provide information on the research the candidate has undertaken in a way that is informative to those who do not necessarily have an in-depth knowledge of the subject area.
- Use subheadings to summarise the candidates main research areas and highlight the significant books, journal articles, and other specific key contributions and developments outlined within the candidates CV.
The call for nominations is now open. The closing date for nomination is Friday 29 April 2016.
Recipients are invited to deliver the Presidents' Award Lecture at the Society's annual conference, at which they will be presented with a commemorative certificate. Recipients are also eligible for Life Membership of the Society.
Further details, including the criteria can be obtained from the Board Administrator.
