Peter Smith Medal
This medal is awarded biennially to an outstanding early career researcher in any field. The recipient receives a medal and will be invited to deliver “The Peter Smith Lecture” to the Society.
For the purpose of the medal, “early career” means within the first seven years since the award of a PhD, at the time of the nomination deadline. Extensions to the seven years post-PhD eligibility requirement will be offered to applicants whose career has been interrupted to accommodate carer responsibilities, illness or other circumstances.
Further conditions of the award are:
- The research should have been largely carried out in Tasmania or under the aegis of a Tasmania-based organisation and within the Society’s purview; and
- Nominations may be made by anyone although no self-nominations will be accepted.
- Nominations must be received by cob, August 31, 2020.
