*The Rohlf Medal*

The Rohlf Medal was established in 2006 by the family and friends of F. 
James Rohlf to mark his 70th birthday. He has been a longtime Stony Brook 
University faculty member and is currently Emeritus Distinguished Professor 
in the Department of Ecology and Evolution, and Research Professor in the 
Department of Anthropology. 


Recipients of the Rohlf Medal will be recognized for excellence in their 
body of work on the development of new morphometric methods or for their 
applications in the biomedical or biological sciences, including 
evolutionary biology, population biology, physical anthropology, 
developmental biology, neurobiology, computer sciences and medicine. The 
term ‘morphometrics’ is intended to include high-dimensional pattern 
analyses of biological shape, especially those that analyze shape in a 
comprehensive way, or of covariation of shape with other variables. The 
award can recognize advances in the mathematical or statistical theory 
underlying morphometric methods, new software that implements or visualizes 
new methods, or specific new biological findings that rely crucially on 
contemporary morphometric methods and represent major advances.


Candidates for the Rohlf Medal may be self-nominated or nominated by 
others. They must possess a Ph.D. degree or the equivalent.


The winning candidate must agree to attend the award ceremony in person in 
order to accept the Rohlf Medal and then deliver the award lecture.



Nomination packages should include, 

(1) a description of the body of work (not to exceed two pages) on which 
the candidacy is based, 

(2) reprints of no more than three relevant papers and/or software 

(3) a curriculum vitae, and 

(4) three letters of support. 


Nominating packages should be uploaded to the Rohlf Medal website 
(http://life.bio.sunysb.edu/ee/rohlf_medal/apply.html) and received by 5 
pm, EST, 15 July 2017 to be assured of full consideration.


The successful candidate will receive the Rohlf Medal and a cash prize at 
Stony Brook University, planned for October 24th, 2017.  She or he will 
deliver a lecture that is appropriate for a broad audience, ranging from 
the exact sciences to the humanities, concerning the morphometric 
methodology, software, or findings for which the Rohlf Medal was awarded.
