Award background and eligibility

The Jaeger Medal is a career award 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.

This award is open to nominations for candidates from all genders. The Australian Academy of Science encourages nominations of female candidates and of candidates from a broad geographical distribution.

Career awards recognise achievement over a career of whatever length.

Candidates may be put forward for more than one award. 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.
