Pawsey Medal

The Pawsey Medal recognises the contributions to science in Australia by the late Dr JL Pawsey, FAA. Its purpose is to recognise outstanding research in physics by scientists up to 10 years post-PhD in the calendar year of nomination, except in the case of significant interruptions to a research career. The award is made annually and is restricted to candidates who are normally resident in Australia and for research conducted mainly in Australia.

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 early-career honorific award, they will not be eligible for nomination for another early-career or mid-career honorific award. A mid-career honorific award recipient will also not be eligible for nomination for another mid-career honorific award.
