The Ecological Society of Australia (ESA) is calling for nominations for the Australian Ecology Research Award (AERA). The AERA recognises excellence in research in Australian ecology, for a specific body of recent work by a mid-career researcher.
The AERA award aims to recognize outstanding ecological research irrespective of the sector in which the nominee works; nominations of researchers from academia, and the public and private sector agencies are invited. While peer-nomination is preferred, self-nomination is not discouraged.
All nominations will be reviewed by an independent panel of expert ecologists from around Australia (chaired by ESA Vice President – Research, Raghu Sathyamurthy) to select an AERA winner. A condition of receipt of the AERA is the willingness of the recipient to deliver a Plenary at the annual conference of the ESA. The 2015 recipient will be invited to give their AERA lecture in Adelaide, South Australia where the ESA conference will be held between November 30 – December 3, 2015. The AERA recipient's travel, registration and accommodation to attend the conference will be paid or reimbursed by ESA.
Important Timelines: Deadline for AERA nomination: 30-April-2015 | Review of AERA nominees: 30-May-2015
