The next AmeriDendro conference will be held in Montreal, Canada in June 2022. To apply or nominate someone, preferably an early career scientist for the Florence Hawley Ellis Diversity Award, please send the following material to Neil Pederson by July 1, 2021:
- Cover letter, maximum of 2 pages (no less than 10 point font, please), describing:
- how you see yourself (or see the candidate you are nominating) as underrepresented in the dendrochronlogy world, and how your science and your service* will help dendrochronology continue to evolve. There are many other ways you can contribute to diversity in our field, including mentorship, working with disadvantaged or underrepresented communities, policy, etc., not simply your science.
- Note 1: While we appreciate underrepresented aspects of our science, the intention of this award is to recognize outstanding contributions of early career scientists from underrepresented backgrounds to diversify our community.
- Note 2: While we expect the letters to be in English as it is currently the language of science. However, please note the committee will not judge an application by the grammar. We will judge the application on its content and the applicant on their potential to diversify our community.
- A C.V.
- Two reference letters supporting the applicant (nominee)
- A sample of work representative of research arc, 2 pieces max
The winner of the first AmeriDendro Florence Hawley Ellis Diversity Award will be contacted in September 2021 so they can prepare to travel to AmeriDendro in June 2022.
