Two nomination forms are necessary for each proposed supervisor. First nominations should be from current researchers or research students in the group of the nominee. Second nominations may also come from current group members but past members are also encouraged for areas where smaller research groups are common. Each nomination can have multiple signatures from eligible researchers. If you are thinking about nominating your supervisor please talk to others to ensure there are not more than two nomination forms are submitted.
Only two will be read.
