Deadline: February 21

Eligibility Requirements: Postdoctoral Scholar/Associates must be in attendance at the SOT Annual Meeting; the scholar/associate must be a postdoctoral member of SOT and NTSS (or show evidence of application) and meet the SOT criteria for classification as a postdoctoral scholar/associate at the time of the Annual Meeting. Postdoctoral Scholars/Associates giving platform presentations at the Annual Meeting are also eligible if they prepare a poster summarizing their talk. Advisors or mentors who are not members are strongly encouraged to join NTSS.

Submission Requirements: An extended abstract and a letter of support from the postdoc scholar/associate's advisor outlining the graduate student's independence and role on the research should be submitted to Kristen Ryan, Councilor for NTSS Student and Postdoctoral Awards Committee, by February 21, 2022. The extended abstract should consist of the abstract originally submitted to SOT, a 2-4 sentence description of the impact of the research, up to one page of key figures or data, and a 3-5 sentence conclusion (total of 3 pages). We anticipate at least 3 judges will evaluate each poster.

The awardee will be announced at the annual NTSS Business Meeting in conjunction with the Annual Meeting.
