EME Awards 2019

Jim Williams Student Award

Neville Fletcher Early Career Researcher Award

These awards will recognize achievements of EME students and ECRs (within 5 years of PhD)
during their affiliation with the Department. There will be a maximum of one award for
students and one for ECRs each calendar year. The awards recognize outstanding
achievements in one or more of the following areas:

  • • Excellence in research
  • • Excellence in education
  • • Successful entrepreneurial activities/industry engagement
  • • Promoting equity, diversity and inclusion
  • • Promoting collaboration in the School and/or University
  • • Engagement with the community/general public

Nominations for the awards can be made by anyone in EME (self-nomination encouraged). A
short description of the achievements (< 200 words) and supporting evidence will need to be
submitted with the nomination. The evidence can include publications, invitations to
conferences, student evaluations or references from senior academics, collaborators and
event organizers amongst others.

Deadline for submission in 2019 is October 31st and awards will be announced at the EME
Christmas party. The selection committee will be gender balanced and made up of EME senior
academics and one external member from the School. A person can only receive the award
once but can re-nominate if unsuccessful. To be eligible, a student or ECR will need to have
been at EME for at least 6 months at the deadline for nomination.

The awardee will receive a certificate, a note on the EME website and a contribution of $1,000
towards their academic endeavors (e.g. conference visits etc.). The award will include a
citation recognizing the particular achievement by the awardee.
