Nominations for the 2015 Moran Medal will open in February 2014.
The Moran Medal recognises the contributions to science of the late P.A.P. Moran, FAA. Its purpose is to recognise outstanding research by scientists no more than 40 years of age in the calendar year of nomination, except in the case of significant interruptions to a research career, in one or more of the fields of applied probability, biometrics, mathematical genetics, psychometrics and statistics. The award is normally made every two years.
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.
