More Judges Needed for Rodger Doxsey Travel Prizes
The Rodger Doxsey Travel Prize provides graduate students or postdocs within one year (either side) of receipt of their PhD a monetary prize to enable the oral presentation of their dissertation research at a winter meeting of the AAS. With the regular abstract deadline for the 223rd AAS meeting in Washington, DC, 5-9 January 2014, now behind us, it’s time to choose this year’s Doxsey Prize winners. We put out a call for volunteers several weeks ago but came up short. If you’re a full member of the AAS and are willing to review and rank the ~100 dissertation abstracts* entered into this year’s competition, please send me an email by Monday, 21 October. Judging will take place in late October/early November.
*I know the number seems large, but the abstracts are short!
