      In 2012 we established a NEW IOBC NRS award: the Early Career Outstanding Scientist Award.  Nominees should be no more than 10 years post PhD and have made significant contributions to the field of biological control through research, teaching, and/or extension/outreach. Nominees must have spent most of their career in the Nearctic Region and be a current IOBC member.     READ MORE >>


Distinguished Scientist Award

      Nominees must have spent most of their career in the Nearctic Region, and have made significant contributions to biological control, but need not be members of IOBC. Nomination narratives are restricted to one page in length and should contain a thorough but concise summary of the principle contributions of the nominee. The nominator should include the names and current contact information of both nominator and nominee on a separate page. A copy of the nominee’s CV (no page limit) should also be included that provides the nominee’s professional record (i.e., employment affiliations), list of prior awards, description of biological control related activities (in paragraph form), publications lists, and extramural grant record.

Two Awards for Outstanding Graduate Students in Biological Control

      The IOBC-NRS sponsors two Outstanding Graduate Student Awards for students whose contributions are likely to shape the future of the discipline of biological control - one each for PhD (the Robert J. O’Neil Outstanding PhD in Biological Control Award) and MS students. The recipients will be recognized at the IOBC-NRS Informal Conference held at the Annual Entomological Society of America meeting and each will receive a cash award (NEW ! $500 for PhD and $500 for MS). The PhD winner presents the lead talk in the IOBC-NRS symposium.  READ MORE >>
