New Caroline Herschel Prize Lectureship for Early Career Astro-Scientists

April 2, 2018

The William Herschel and Royal Astronomical societies will celebrate
promising early-career female astro-scientists* with a new Caroline
Herschel prize: cash and two lectures.

This is a result of campaigning for greater recognition of Caroline’s
contribution to astronomy within the William Herschel Society, and one
astronomer’s £10,000-donation ($14,130) to inspire the prize-fund.

Thank you to all who supported the campaign.

Encourage young colleagues to apply:

-For achievements in Research and/or Instrument Building and/or
Communication and/or Teaching.
-Applicants at least one year post-PhD (viva date), not yet tenured,
and normally working in the U.K.
-Award includes travel expenses to deliver a lecture in Bath and in
London to the William Herschel and Royal Astronomical Societies.

*For this award astroscience includes astrophysics, cosmology,
astroparticle physics, astrobiology, astrochemistry, solar physics,
solar-terrestrial physics, planetary and meteoritic sciences.

Deadline April 30th.
