Nominations will open for the annual RST Doctoral Awards on 1 October. Two awards are offered for recent PhD graduates who have made significant advances in the course of their doctoral research. The value of each award is $1,000 (AUD). Awardees may be invited to present a lecture to the Society.
Conditions of the Doctoral Awards
The awards shall be made to nominees who are no more than three years, or three years equivalent-full-time, after their PhD graduation.
The awards are intended to recognise significant advances based on the PhD research, as shown by published or in press peer-reviewed papers in national/international journals or equivalent outputs in fields where publications are not the norm.
The research should have been largely carried out in Tasmania or under the aegis of a Tasmanian-based organization.
Nominations may be made by anyone although no self-nominations will be accepted.
Jocelyn McPhie, on behalf of the RST Honours and Awards Committee.
