Nominations will open in early 2020 for the 2021 award.
The Jaeger Medal is made in honour of the contribution of the late Professor John Conrad Jaeger, FAA, FRS, to Australian Earth science. The award is made to a scientist for investigations of a high order into the solid Earth or its oceans carried out in Australia or having some connection with Australian Earth science. Although work carried out during a candidate's entire career will be taken into consideration, special weight will be given to recent research. The award is normally made every two years.
The Australian Academy of Science encourages nominations of female candidates and of candidates from a broad geographical distribution.
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.
