Applications for the Faces of the Future Symposium Awards, created through an endowment established by Milt and Nancy Schroth, are now being accepted. Four awards are available and will provide funds of $500 each to the selected presenters to help support their travel to the 2013 APS-MSA Joint Meeting in Austin, Texas. The 2013 symposium will be entitled “Schroth Faces of the Future–Explorations in Contemporary Mycology.” The speakers will be asked to present their research in a special session where they will have the opportunity to highlight their current work and speculate on the future directions of their discipline. In addition, the speakers will have the opportunity to submit a mini-review to be published as a fully citable APSnet feature, where they can highlight their philosophy and thinking about the future direction of their discipline.
This symposium is designed to acknowledge the new faces shaping the future of mycology. We encourage nominations of scientists in the early stages of their careers (within 10 years of graduation, including post-docs) that are forward thinkers and are perceived to be the future leaders in the field of mycology. Speakers must be APS members.
Applications must include:
Applications should be submitted as a single-merged PDF document to Teresa Hughes at email@example.com via e-mail by 5 p.m. (EST) February 15, 2013. Speakers will be chosen by a selection committee composed of prominent mycologists and members of the Early Career Professionals Committee.
