Endowed Biogeochemistry Lecture

The GS is pleased to announce that Dr. Jennifer Pett-Ridge, Group Leader, Environmental Isotope Systems at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (USA) will deliver the 2019 Endowed Biogeochemistry Lecture. Titled Impacts of Dynamic Soil Redox on Biogeochemical Transformations and Soil Microbiomes, it will take place on Thursday, Aug. 22 at 16:30 during the Goldschmidt Conference in Barcelona.

Submit a Nomination for the 2020 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. This prestigious lecture series, presented annually at the Goldschmidt Conference, recognizes a prominent scientist who is making cutting-edge field-based measurements or laboratory measurements on field samples in the area of biogeochemistry.

Nominations are now open for the 2020 Endowed Biogeochemistry Lecture, to be delivered at Goldschmidt2020 in Honolulu, Hawai'i, USA. The lecturer will receive a complimentary registration and travel stipend.

Nomination requirements:

  • Nominee's CV (up to 4 pages)
  • List of publications
  • List of recent presentations and link to webpage, if available
  • A recommendation letter from the nominator (up to 2 pages)

Nominations deadline: October 31, 2019
