The Statistics Department at Harvard University is soliciting nominations for the 2016 Pickard Lecture Award. This biennial award is funded by the David K. Pickard Memorial Endowment in memory of Professor Pickard, who was an exceptional teacher of statistics. Every two years, we host a lecture and reception to recognize an outstanding university faculty member, who gives a talk on a topic to do with teaching and pedagogy. Additional information about the award and previous winners are available here.
All nominations are welcome starting now until 5:00 pm on Wednesday, June 15th. All university faculty from outside Harvard University are eligible. Please send your nominee’s CV and a letter of recommendation to Madeleine Straubel. You may direct any questions to her as well.
