The call for nominations is now open. The deadline for making a nomination is the 11th of May 2018.
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.
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 lifetime membership of the Society.
To make a nomination please contact Liz Beech, Board Administrator.
Nominators will be asked to provide a nomination statement.
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.
Nominators must be members of the Society.
