An excellent piece of news to round off my first year back in the UK after leaving the Jet Propulsion Laboratory: I’ve been awarded the Royal Astronomical Society Winton Capital Prize (2011) awarded “for research by a Post Doctoral Fellow in a UK institution in geophysics whose career has shown the most promising development” More details can be found below.
Here’s the news release from the Royal Astronomical Society (2011)
Astronomy and Geophysics Award Announcement (2009)
Two prizes, sponsored by Winton Capital, for research by a Post Doctoral Fellow in a UK institution in respectively astronomy ('A') & geophysics ('G') whose career has shown the most promising development. At the time of nomination candidates, in normal circumstances, should have completed their PhD no more than 5 years previously.
