The Pangborn Awards Committee invites nominations for the following Food Quality and Preference Awards, sponsored by Elsevier.
(1) Contributions by an established researcher
Awarded to a researcher who has made major contributions to our understanding of sensory or consumer science, whether in terms of basic processes, methodologies or applications of knowledge or methods, over a prolonged period.
(2) Contributions by a young researcher
Awarded to a researcher who received their doctoral degree 10 or fewer years prior to the year of the granting of the award for contributions to sensory or consumer science, whether in terms of basic processes, methodologies or applications of knowledge or methods.
For either award, nominations can be made by any individual within the sensory science community and should be accompanied by supporting documentation, including:
(a) A letter of support outlining the important contributions of the nominee,
(b) Additional information on the nominee including the current position and title, address, telephone, e-mail address, year of receipt of the PhD and a list of publications (alternately include a full CV), and
(c) Up to three other supplemental letters of support.
The successful nominee for each award will receive a cash award of 1000 Euro, a certificate of award, and a one-year subscription to Food Quality and Preference. In addition, the established researcher award recipient will be asked to give a talk based on their research during the Pangborn Symposium.
Nominations for both awards should be sent to John Prescott, Chair of the Pangborn Awards
Committee (firstname.lastname@example.org) no later than May 1, 2015.
