The RANZCP Senior Research Award
The RANZCP Senior Research Award was established in 1978 to recognise excellence in research in psychiatry in Australia and Aotearoa New Zealand.
The Award is made annually to the Fellow or Affiliate who, in the opinion of the Selection Panel, has made the most significant contribution to psychiatric research in Australia and Aotearoa New Zealand over the preceding five years.
Current Fellows or Affiliate members of the RANZCP are eligible for the Award. Previous recipients of the Award are not eligible to receive the Award on a further occasion within a period of five years from the year of the previous Award.
Applications/nominations for the Award may be made by Fellows or Affiliate members on their own behalf, or on their behalf by another RANZCP member. Written applications/nominations should include a curriculum vitae, the five publications authored by the applicant/nominee considered to be their best or most impactful work over the past five years, a critical appraisal of the importance of the work to the field of study, and reprints where available. Where there are multiple authors involved, the application should clearly indicate the contribution of the applicant/nominee to the work.
The psychiatric research submitted as the basis of the nomination must have been published within five years of the awards submission opening date, with publication in prestigious journals or their equivalent. Work performed wholly in Australia/Aotearoa New Zealand or partly in Australia/Aotearoa New Zealand and partly elsewhere is acceptable.
Applications/nominations must be submitted to email@example.com
Submissions are open annually, from 1 September to 31 October (11.59 pm AEDT).
