Three Early Career Awards recognise early career research contributions to social psychology. For the awards to be presented at the 2023 General Meeting, candidates should have been awarded their PhD no earlier than 01 October 2018 and no later than 30 September 2021. This period can be extended by up to one year in cases where the candidate has taken leave (e.g., parental/carer leave). For the 2023 awards, this means that the PhD should have been awarded no earlier than 01 October 2017. Candidates should be full EASP members at the time of application. The selection panel will take into consideration the year in which applicants were awarded their PhD so that there are equal chances to receive the award depending on PhD award date.
The call for these awards is typically issued in the Summer prior to the General Meeting. Candidates may self-nominate or be nominated by two (and only two) full members of the EASP. In each case, candidates should submit their CVs and two letters of support. Nominators must have—and indicate on their letter of support that they have—the candidate’s permission to nominate them for the award. Awardees will be selected by a panel including one member of the Executive Committee and three full members of the EASP. The awardees will each receive a certificate and their registration fees for the General Meeting will be covered by the EASP.
