External Awards Subcommittee: FABBS Award Now Open
SIOP’s new External Awards Subcommittee, under the
Awards Committee, is currently seeking nominations for the 2013 FABBS
Foundation Early Career Investigator Award. The Federation of Associations
in Behavioral & Brain Sciences (FABBS), of which
SIOP is a member society, is a coalition of scientific societies that share
an interest in advancing the sciences of mind, brain, and behavior. The
Early Career Investigator Award is presented by the FABBS
Foundation to early career scientists of FABBS member
societies during the first 10 years post-PhD and recognizes scientists who
have made major contributions to our sciences.
Deadline for submissions is October
12, 2012. All submissions must be provided
via e-mail to the External Awards committee at ExternalAwards@siop.org.
The goal of the award is to enhance public visibility of
mind, brain, and behavior sciences and of the particular research of award
recipients. Nominations are encouraged for individuals who have made
outstanding research contributions, and especially – but not
exclusively – for 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).
