Society of Canadian Ornithologists’ Early Career Research Award

 

The Early Career Researcher Award honours fledgling ornithologists - in academia, industry, non-government or government agencies – that show strong potential for future leadership in Canadian ornithology. The award will be presented to the recipient at the Society’s annual meeting where they will be invited to give a 30 minute keynote address, and travel to the meeting will be subsidized.  The recipient will also be asked to provide a synopsis of their work to appear as a multi-page colour feature in the Society’s Picoides newsletter.

NOMINATION

Candidates can be nominated by themselves, former/current supervisors, colleagues and/or peers.  A nomination letter should include a short statement (max 1000 words) describing the nominee’s accomplishments to date. To be eligible, the candidate must have received their PhD from or currently working at a Canadian institution. The researcher should have obtained her or his PhD no more than five years prior to the SCO meeting where the award is to be given, or be at a similar career stage if pursuing a career in ornithology without a PhD. Periods where the researcher has not been active due to parental or personal leave would be excluded from the five years.  Deadline for submission of nominations is 28 February 2020. Nominations should be sent, by email, to:
