SETAC AU Early-Career Medal

This medal will be awarded in recognition for excellence in scientific work in Australasia that has involved substantial environmental toxicology and chemistry, or for service to environmental toxicology and chemistry in Australasia, over the past five years.

Applications are currently closed. The next round is likely to open in early 2018, please check back then.

SETAC AU Mid-Career Medal

This medal will be awarded in recognition for excellence in scientific work in Australasia that has involved substantial environmental toxicology and chemistry, or for service to environmental toxicology and chemistry in Australasia, over the past ten years.

Applications are currently closed. The next round is likely to open in early 2018, please check back then.

SETAC AU National Travel Fellowships

One or two SETAC AU National Travel Fellowships are offered every year. The goal of these fellowships are to promote greater dissemination of environmental toxicology and chemistry knowledge and professional networks throughout Australasia, by providing travel support to the recipients to present seminars or technical workshops in Australasia.

Applications are currently closed. The next round is likely to open in April 2018, please check back then.

SETAC AU Science in Industry/Business Award

This award is to recognise SETAC AU members in the industry and business community (i.e. the private sector) who have demonstrated an integration of science and business in the area of environmental toxicology and chemistry.

Applications are currently closed. The next round is likely to open in early 2018, please check back then.

SETAC AU Technical Staff Award

Much of the science that underpins our society is based on data generated by highly skilled and extremely diligent technical staff. This award seeks to recognise the irreplaceable contribution these members make to environmental toxicology and chemistry in Australasia.

Applications are currently closed. The next round is likely to open in early 2018, please check back then.

Science Meets Parliament (SmP) Ambassador Award

Science meets Parliament (SmP) is the major event hosted by Science and Technology Australia (STA). This event was first hosted in 1999 and takes place in Canberra in mid-March during non-election years.  Science meets Parliament (SmP) brings together about 200 of Australia’s top scientists and puts them face to face with the decision makers in Canberra. Participants include parliamentarians, staffers, lobbyists and journalists plus scientists from all disciplines.

This setting provides scientists with the opportunity to interact with politicians, policy makers and the media and gives you an opportunity to look at your science from a different perspective.  A range of topics are available including science in the media, the influence of science on policy making, the impact of science on Australia’s economy and environment and its understanding in the broader community.

Applications are currently closed. The next round is likely to open late 2017, please come back then.
