The New Phytologist Tansley Medal is awarded annually in recognition of an outstanding contribution to research in plant science by an individual in the early stages of their career (student and post-doctoral researchers with up to five years' experience since gaining/defending their PhD are eligible). The winner will receive a prize of £2000 (GBP) and will author a short review that will be published in New Phytologist accompanied by a comment from the Editor-in-Chief and Tansley reviews Editor. The application deadline for this year's Medal is 1 December 2014.
The Tansley Medal is an opportunity to award recognition to an outstanding scientist in the early stages of his or her career and supporting and nurturing the next generation of plant scientists is a core aspect of the activities of the New Phytologist Trust. I would be very grateful if you would support us in this endeavour by spreading the word to anyone you know who might be eligible to apply for the 2015 Tansley Medal. If you have any queries regarding the medal or the submission process please do not hesitate to get in touch. More details on the Medal can be found at: http://www.newphytologist.org/tansleymedal.
