The Marvin Zelen Leadership Award in Statistical Science is an annual award established to honour Harvard University professor Marvin Zelen, his long and distinguished career as a statistician and his major role in shaping the field of biostatistics.
The award recognises 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 virtual lecture on statistical science and will be presented with a citation and an honorarium.
Nominations are welcome for next year’s award, to be given in May 2021.
Please send nominations via email to Shaina Andelman (preferred).
Nominations should include a letter describing the contributions of the candidate, specifically highlighting the criteria for the award, and a curriculum vitae. Other supporting materials would be extremely helpful to the committee.
All nominations must be received by Friday, February 12, 2021.
See website for further information and the prestigious list of previous award recipients.
