Endowed Biogeochemistry Lecture

In 2015, an anonymous donor made a major gift to the Geochemical Society to launch a new endowed lecture to highlight innovative research in biogeochemistry. The lecture will be given each year at the Goldschmidt Conference. 

Call for Nominations

The Geochemical Society is currently seeking nominations for the 2018 Endowed Biogeochemistry Lecture. This prestigious lecture series recognizes a prominent scientist who is making cutting-edge field-based measurements or laboratory measurements on field samples in the area of biogeochemistry.

The third Endowed Biogeochemistry Lecture will be presented at Goldschmidt2018 in Boston (August 12-17) as a keynote in a related session. The honoree will receive an award certificate and partial reimbursement for meeting registration, lodging, and travel/airfare.

Anyone working in or studying geochemistry or related fields may submit a nomination for the lecture.

Nomination requirements: Please include the full name and contact details for the nominee and nominator, a short CV for the nominee, and a letter of support from the nominator explaining the rationale for the nomination to: awards@geochemsoc.org.

Nominations deadline: January 15, 2018
