Early Career Award

The LAD Early Career Award is presented, normally on an annual basis (beginning in 2016), to an individual in recognition of a significant theoretical or experimental contribution to laboratory astrophysics early in a person's professional career. Nominees must have no more than 10 years of professional experience since their PhD or equivalent degree, at the end of the year of the award. The award includes a check, a framed certificate, and an invited lecture by the recipient at a meeting of the Laboratory Astrophysics Division.

The Laboratory Astrophysics Division (LAD) of the American Astronomical Society (AAS) annually invites nominations for the Early Career Award. For information on the nomination process please go to the Call for Nominations page.

The deadline for receipt of the nomination package and supporting letters for the Early Career Award is by 11:59:59 pm EDT on 1 July each year.
