The Marvin Zelen Leadership Award in Statistical Science is an annual award supported by colleagues, friends and family, and was established to honor Dr. Marvin Zelen’s long and distinguished career as a statistician and his major role in shaping the field of biostatistics.
The award recognizes an individual in government, industry, or academia, who by virtue of his/her outstanding leadership, has greatly impacted the theory and practice of statistical science. While individual accomplishments are considered, the most distinguishing criterion is the awardee’s contribution to the creation of an environment in which statistical science and its applications have flourished. The award recipient will deliver a public lecture on statistical science at the Harvard T. H. Chan School of Public Health and will be presented with a citation and an honorarium.
Nominations are welcome for next year’s award, to be given in Spring 2020.
Nominations should include a letter describing the contributions of the candidate, specifically highlighting the criteria for the award, and a curriculum vita. Other supporting materials would be extremely helpful to the committee.
Please send nominations via email – Deadline: Monday, December 2, 2019.
See website for further information and the prestigious list of previous award recipients.
