The ASA is pleased to announce the establishment of a new prize – the Anne Green Prize for a significant advance or accomplishment by a mid-career scientist. See https://protect-au.mimecast.com/s/Rw9jC0YZWVFjY2nWhwRE2E?domain=asa.astronomy.org.au<https://protect-au.mimecast.com/s/Rw9jC0YZWVFjY2nWhwRE2E?domain=asa.astronomy.org.au>

Nominations are now open for the initial award of the Anne Green Prize with a closing date of Thursday, May 24.

The Prize will be awarded based on a nominated body of work that supports the scientific accomplishment and the subsequent impact of the research. The research can be in any area of astronomy or a closely related field.

The Prize is named in honour of Professor Anne Green who retired from astronomy research in 2017. Professor Green was the first female PhD student to be enrolled in the School of Physics at the University of Sydney. She received her PhD in 1973 and after a 12-year break from astronomy, went on to build a prolific career focussed on the ecology and structure of the Milky Way Galaxy. Professor Green was the Director of the renowned Molonglo Observatory for more than a decade and she was appointed the first female Head of Physics at the University of Sydney in 2007. She was also President of the ASA from mid-2003 to 2005 and served on Council for six years. Amongst all her scientific achievements, Professor Green has also been a passionate advocate and inspiring example for Women in Science.

To be eligible for the Prize, the applicant:

-          must have had their PhD conferred 5 to 15 years* prior to the nomination deadline.

-          the nominated body of work that supports the significant advance or accomplishment must have been published in refereed scientific journals, appearing in final published form within 5 years* prior to the nomination deadline.

-          must be a financial member of the ASA and have held that membership for at least two years prior to nomination for the award.
* Acceptable leaves of absence from active research will be taken into consideration when determining eligibility.

The Prize consists of the Anne Green Medal together with an award of $2,500.

The Society’s prizes are funded through the ASA’s tax deductible Foundation for the Advancement of Astronomy (FAA).
