ANTON HALES MEDAL IN THE EARTH SCIENCES
Nominations for the 2014 Anton Hales Medal are now open.
Closing Date 29 July 2013
The Anton Hales Medal recognises research in the Earth sciences and honours the contributions to the Earth sciences by the late Professor Anton L Hales FAA. Professor Hales was the founding director of the Research School of Earth Sciences in the Australian National University.
Its purpose is to recognise distinguished research in the Earth sciences. It will be awarded to researchers no more than 40 years of age in the calendar year of nomination, except in the case of significant interruptions to a research career. The award may be made annually and is restricted to candidates who are normally resident in Australia and for research conducted mainly in Australia.
There is also a $1000 prize attached to this award.
NB If a proposed candidate is already the recipient of an Academy award, the second award must be for a distinct, additional, body of work undertaken since the first award, and/or work in a different field.
