The Hodson Award is conferred on a palaeontologist who has had no more than 10 years of full time experience after their PhD, excluding periods of parental or other leave, but not excluding periods spent working in industry, and who has made a notable contribution to the science.
The candidate must be nominated by at least two members of the Association and the application must be supported by an appropriate academic case, namely a single page of details on the candidate's career, and a brief statement from each of the two nominees. A list of principal publications should accompany the nomination. Letters of support by others may also be submitted. If a candidate has taken time out from their professional career for family and other purposes, this should be highlighted.
The academic case, statements of support and publication list should be attached in MS Word or PDF format.
Nominations should be sent to email@example.com by 31st March.
The Hodson Award is presented at the Annual Meeting.
