The Pangborn Awards Committee invites nominations for the following Food Quality and Preference Awards, sponsored by Elsevier.
(1) Contributions by an established researcher
Awarded to a researcher who has made major contributions to our understanding of sensory or consumer science, whether in terms of basic processes, methodologies or applications of knowledge or methods, over a prolonged period.
(2) Contributions by a young researcher
Awarded to a researcher who received their doctoral degree 10 or fewer years prior to the year of the granting of the award for contributions to sensory or consumer science, whether in terms of basic processes, methodologies or applications of knowledge or methods.
For either award, nominations can be made by any individual within the sensory science community and should be accompanied by supporting documentation, including:
(a) A letter of support outlining the important contributions of the nominee,
(b) Additional information on the nominee including the current position and title, address, telephone, e-mail address, year of receipt of the PhD and a list of publications (alternately include a full CV), and
(c) Up to three other supplemental letters of support.
The successful nominee for each award will receive a cash award of 1000 Euro, a certificate of award, and a one-year subscription to Food Quality and Preference. In addition, both award recipients will be asked to give a talk based on their research during the Pangborn Symposium.
Nominations for both awards should be sent to John Prescott, Chair of the Pangborn Awards
Committee (firstname.lastname@example.org) no later than May 3, 2013.
This Rick Bell Memorial Scholarship is in memory of Dr. Rick Bell who co-chaired the 2003 Pangborn Sensory Science Symposium in Boston. Rick’s research in industry, academia and government exemplified an interdisciplinary approach to conducting innovative sensory and consumer research. Rick combined his love of sensory and consumer science with a love for music and the arts. He was a gifted performer and loved working with other people. Both his long-term colleagues and short-term acquaintances considered Rick a good friend.
This scholarship, to be offered at each Pangborn meeting, will be for a maximum of US$3000, and will be awarded to one graduate student for travel and attendance to that year’s Pangborn meeting. To receive the award, the student must submit an oral or poster contribution to the Pangborn program.
The selection criteria for this award appear below. Applications can be obtained from Dr. Armand Cardello, Natick RD&E Center (email@example.com) and should be submitted to him by May 1st 2013. In addition, each application should include a letter of support from academic supervisor or other senior academic colleague.
Selection of the Rick Bell Memorial Travel Scholarship awardee will be made by Dr. Armand Cardello and Dr. Herb Meiselman, his colleagues at Natick, and the Co-Chairs of the 2003 Pangborn meeting.
