Nominations for 2018 are now open. Nomination deadline 20 April 2017.
The Gottschalk medal recognises the contributions to science by the late Professor A Gottschalk, FAA.
Its purpose is to recognise outstanding research in the medical sciences by researchers up to 10 years post-PhD in the calendar year of nomination, except in the case of significant interruptions to a research career. The awardee may not be a Fellow of the Academy. The award is made annually and is restricted to candidates who are normally resident in Australia and for research conducted mainly in Australia.
NB: If a proposed candidate is already the recipient of an Academy early- or mid-career honorific award, they will not be eligible for nomination for another early- or mid-career honorific award.
The medal is made by the Royal Australian Mint, Canberra, and was designed by Dr Suart Devlin AO, CMG.
