Call for nominations for Fellows of the Paleontological Society
Fellows are members of the Paleontological Society who have made significant contributions to paleontology through research, teaching, or service to the profession. Recipients of the Paleontological Society Medal and the Charles Schuchert Award automatically become Fellows if they have not previously been elected to fellowship.
Deadline for nominations: February 28, 2020
Nominations will remain active for three years.
Who May Nominate?
Any member of the Paleontological Society may nominate another member for election to fellowship.
How to Nominate
The nomination dossiers should include a letter outlining the contributions of the nominee, along with a CV or biographical sketch of the nominee. The letter should focus on those contributions that are most likely to be salient to fellow paleontologists; information on citations, grants, previous professional recognition, etc. is generally less helpful.
The nomination must also have the support of two active Fellows; this support can be as simple as endorsing the nominating letter (i.e. additional letters are not required). Nominations coming from a Fellow require the support of one additional Fellow.
Finally, all nominees must separately complete a PS Professional Conduct Self-Reporting Form as prescribed in the Paleontological Society Policy on Non-Discrimination and Member Code of Conduct. The completed form should be submitted to [email protected] . If, for any reason, a nominee is uncomfortable about completing the form, they are welcome to contact a member of the ethics committee for a confidential conversation in advance.
Please send nominations to the Chair of the Committee of Fellows (Peter Wilf: [email protected]) or the Secretary of the Society (Claudia C Johnson: [email protected]). You can also submit nominations using the form below.
