CALL FOR EMAIL NOMINATIONS
The Society for Mathematical Psychology is soliciting nominations for an award to be given for exceptional published research in the field of mathematical psychology by an early career researcher. “Early career researcher” is intended to include individuals who are either students or are no more than six years beyond the Ph.D. at the time of nomination. Publications dated 2006 or later will be considered. The award is to be given for a body of work in the field of Mathematical Psychology.. Single-authored publications are given most weight, but the committee may consider nominees who have been first author on more than one publication. The person nominated need not be a member of the Society. Self nominations will not be considered.
The winner will be selected by a special committee appointed by the Executive Committee; the selection committee normally is chaired by the Society’s President. The winner will be announced at the 45th Annual Mathematical Psychology Society Meeting in 2012. The recipient will receive a $250 tax-free award, plus up to $1,000 in travel costs, and will be invited to make a presentation at a future meeting of the Society.
Nominations should be sent via email by the deadline date of April 15, 2012 and should include:
