Call for Nominations

The Purdue Chapter of the Sigma Xi seeks to recognize a faculty member for outstanding research with an award that consists of a plaque and $1,000. The award will be presented at the Sigma Xi banquet in the spring of 2013. The recipient will be invited to speak at an appropriate occasion.
Nominations are now open for the 2013 Faculty Research Award. The nominee should be currently in residence at the West Lafayette campus, but need not be a member of Sigma Xi. Nominations should include the following:

  • A completed Nomination Form
  • A curriculum vitae of the candidate
  • Three letters of recommendation, at least two of which are from off campus. Letters of recommendation should be sent to the nominator and included in the nomination package
  • Copies or reprints of significant publications

In preparing the nomination, the committee recommends that those writing supporting letters to be asked to concentrate on the distinctive research advances made by the nominee. The nomination should focus on the scientific research accomplishments for which the person is nominated, rather than service to the university or other career accomplishments of the applicant.
