ANBUG recognises the achievements of our members annually in the following areas:
ANBUG Career Award – for sustained contribution throughout the recipient’s career to a scientific subfield, or subfields, using neutron scattering techniques – A$500.
ANBUG Neutron Award – for outstanding research in neutron science and leadership promoting the Australian neutron scattering community (>10 years post PhD) – A$250.
ANBUG Young Scientist Award – for outstanding research utilising neutron scattering by scientists within 10 years of PhD conferral when accounting for significant career breaks A$250.
ANBUG Technical Award – for outstanding service contributing to technical aspects of neutron scattering by university / institute staff or a beamline scientist. It is likely, but not mandatory, that it will be awarded to those who are traditionally not eligible for the other ANBUG awards, from areas such as engineering, sample environment, workshops or instrument staff that have gone above and beyond to facilitate your beam time from a technical perspective – A$250.
ANBUG Outstanding PhD Prize – for a PhD thesis on research using neutron scattering techniques submitted to a university in Australia or New Zealand after 1st January the year prior to the award year (i.e., 1st January 2022 for the 2023 award). Nominations for this award category must be accompanied by copies of the thesis and examiner reports – A$250.
