One of the most important and effective instruments for fostering excellence in magnetism and professional achievements are the Magnetics Society Awards. The Achievement Award was augmented last year by the Distinguished Service Award, and starting from this year we will also present the Early Career Award.
The Achievement Award is given to honor one of its outstanding members for his or her lifetime professional achievement. This is the highest award of the Society and is given for scientific and technical achievements. The award consists of a diploma with citation and a cash award of $3,000. Nominations are due August 31, 2016.
The Distinguished Service Award is given to recognize outstanding service to the Magnetics Society and the magnetics community. It can be awarded to a single recipient or split equally among up to three recipients. The award consists of a diploma with citation and a cash award of $2,000. Nominations are due September 30, 2016.
The Early Career 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 have been significantly beyond the average performance of a person at that career level. The award consists of a diploma with citation and a cash award of $1.500. Nominations are due September 30, 2016.
