Distinguished Emerging Scholar Award

The Dean of Science Distinguished Emerging Scholar Award was established in 2021. It recognizes individuals who have made significant contributions to both teaching and research in the Faculty of Science up to the point at which they receive tenure. 

The award may be given to any current regular faculty member within the Faculty of Science in the academic year in which they are applying for tenure. Nominees will be adjudicated based on the quality, excellence and impact of their research program, as well as the quality and excellence of their teaching (including classroom teaching as well as graduate and undergraduate student supervision) as documented in their tenure package. 

While the award is not necessarily awarded every year, if there is more than one exceptional candidate, more than one award may be made.
