Early-Career Awards

Peter Hall (1951–2016) played a significant role throughout his professional career in mentoring young colleagues at work and through professional society activities. With funds donated by his friends and family, the IMS created the Peter Gavin Hall Early Career Prize: https://www.imstat.org/ims-awards/peter-gavin-hall-ims-early-career-prize/. Its purpose is to recognize early-career research accomplishments and research promise in statistics, broadly construed. (An early-career researcher eligible for the 2023 prize will have received their doctoral degree in any of the years 2015–2022. The IMS gives the award committee latitude to consider nominees with extenuating circumstances that may have delayed professional achievements.) Nominations may be made by any member of the IMS, and nominees do not need to be IMS members. The deadline is December 1, 2022. The award consists of a plaque, a citation, and a cash honorarium.

Richard Tweedie (1947–2001) played a significant role throughout his career as a mentor. The Tweedie New Researcher Award, created in his memory, provides funds for travel to present the Tweedie New Researcher Invited Lecture at the IMS New Researchers Conference. Nominations should be received by December 1, 2022: see the instructions at https://imstat.org/ims-awards/tweedie-new-researcher-award/.
