ISDP Award Information
FABBS Early Career Impact Award
FABBS is pleased to announce the Early Career Impact Award. This award is presented to early career scientists of FABBS member societies (see FABBS membership) during the first 10 years post-PhD and recognizes scientists who have made major contributions to our sciences.
The purpose of this award is to recognize scientists who have made major research contributions to the sciences of mind, brain, and behavior. The goal is to enhance public visibility of these sciences and the particular research through the dissemination efforts of FABBS in collaboration with the member societies and award winners. Nominations are encouraged for individuals who have made outstanding research contributions, especially those who have also increased awareness of science through outreach activities to the public (e.g., community talks, high school demos) or communication with the media (e.g., interviews, blogs).
(1) ISDP seeks nominations from its membership for the award, reviews the nominations, and selects the top candidate for recognition by FABBS.
(2) ISDP completes a form (Early Career Form) explaining why your nominee should receive the award and submits it to FABBS (please send it to firstname.lastname@example.org). The form should be sent to FABBS by November 30, 2016.
(3) The FABBS Board reviews the submissions and approves them for the FABBS award. FABBS announces the awards at the Annual Meeting of the Council of Representatives (in December 2016); interacts with the member society leadership to select a date to give the award at the society annual meeting in 2017; and works with a science writer to highlight and disseminate the research of the early career scientist to a public audience.
