Nominations for the annual RST Doctoral Awards open on 1 October 2023. Two awards are offered for recent PhD graduates who have made significant advances in the course of their doctoral research.
One Doctoral Award is reserved for nominations from disciplines other than STEMM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics and Medicine). The other Award is open.
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 an organization based in Tasmania.
Nominations may be made by anyone although no self-nominations will be accepted.
Nominations must be received before COB, 15 November 2023. Nomination guidelines are given at https://rst.org.au/guidelines-for-annual-doctoral-awards/.
