We are pleased to announce that we are soliciting nominations for the 2013 A.G. HUNTSMAN AWARD for Excellence in Marine Sciences.
The Huntsman Award was established in 1980 to honour individuals of any nationality who have had, and continue to have, a major influence on the development of marine science. It is named in honour of Dr. Archibald Gowanlock Huntsman (18831973), an eminent Canadian oceanographer. Since 1981, the A.G. Huntsman Award has been presented annually in one of three categories:
The award for 2012 will be in the field of Biological Oceanography and Fisheries Science.
Nominees must meet the basic criteria of outstanding scholarship and excellence of contributions to marine science. Nominees should be actively involved in research programs and currently providing major leadership in their field. They must have demonstrated a significant influence on the development of marine scientific thought and should be anticipated to continue having influence in the years to come. Thus, the A.G. Huntsman Award targets marine scientists near the midpoint of their careers and whose reputation and outstanding contributions place them in the forefront of their field. As a guideline, we are seeking nominees whose postdoctoral research career to date has been of order of 15 to 30 years. The A.G. Huntsman Award is not intended to be for lifetime achievements.
The A.G. Huntsman Foundation, bestowers of the award, recognizes the importance of interdisciplinary work in marine science. Therefore, nominations are encouraged where the nominees primary contribution is in the field of Marine Geoscience and exceptional contributions have been made across two or more marine science disciplines or at the interface between oceans and other natural systems.
See a listing of previous winners.
Please consider preparing a nomination for a colleague in Biological Oceanography and Fisheries Science who you feel meets the criteria. The nomination template is attached. Upon completion, the nomination form is expected to be of order of 2 to 5 pages. If you do submit a nomination, please be sure to include a full curriculum vitae and publication list for the nominee. Supporting letters or abbreviated nominations from one to three colleagues are desirable and can be provided as part of the nomination, or this information can be submitted separately.
The deadline for receipt of nominations is April 12, 2013. Nominations may be submitted by mail, fax or e-mail to me (see below). An electronic copy of this letter and the nomination form can be found on the Huntsman website at:
