New Award of the Magnetics Society: the Early Career Award
At the last meeting of the Administrative Committee at the 13th MMM-Intermag 2016 in San Diego the Magnetics Society has decided to establish an Early Career Award.
This award will be given to an individual, nominated not more than 5 years after completion of his or her PhD, and who has already shown outstanding scientific or technical achievements which has been significantly beyond the average performance of a person at that career level.
The Early Career Award will be awarded annually if there is a suitable candidate. It con-sists of a cash award of US$ 1500 plus a travel award of US$ 500 plus life membership in the IEEE Magnetics Society.
The nomination procedure is analogous to that of the Achievement Award and the Distinguished Service Award. The nomination form is available from the website of the Magnetics Society Here.
The selection will be made by a committee appointed by the H&A Chair.
