Peter Nansen Young Scientist Award
Nomination Process

Dear WAAVP members,

This fund was established under the auspices of the WAAVP to honour and perpetuate the memory of Professor Peter Nansen for his outstanding contributions to veterinary parasitology and, in particular, his great concern for and the encouragement of young, promising scientists in this field.

The Peter Nansen Award is given to reward innovative and outstanding work by promising young professionals in the field of veterinary parasitology. Nominations are called for every second year. The award will be presented at the WAAVP Biennial Conference. The registration fees, economy travel costs and accommodation for the recipient to attend the Conference will be reimbursed. If not a registered member, the recipient will also receive a two-year membership of WAAVP.

Nominations are made by a proposer and a seconder, and the portfolio consists of the following documents:

(i) a detailed statement describing the innovative nature and excellence of the work by the young professional (max. 2 pages). This statement should be signed jointly by the proposer and the seconder, or each may submit a separate statement.

(ii) a Curriculum Vitae including a list of publications and a statement outlining the contribution(s) to each publication. The permission of the nominee is not required, and the nominee needs not to be made aware of his/her nomination.

To qualify for the award the Nominees should be younger professionals, with a Master of Science (or equivalent) or higher level degree, aged 40 or younger at the time of nomination for the prize. Nominations should be sent to Richard Wall, the Secretary, of the WAAVP, by 28th February 2017.
