Description: The North American Society for the Study of Personality Disorders (NASSPD) has established the NASSPD Mid-Career Investigator Award to recognize the achievements of mid-level investigators in the field of personality and personality disorders. A committee of distinguished peers will make the selection. The award will recognize an individual whose work has influenced the field through his or her overall professional and scientific productivity, and through contributions that have increased our understanding of personality and personality disorders or their treatment. The winner, who will receive an engraved glass award, will be notified on TBD. The award will be announced to our membership at our conference in Pittsburgh on TBD. The award includes a one-year membership in the NASSPD and complimentary attendance at the NASSPD dinner.

Eligibility: Mid-Career investigators are expected to be associate professors of psychiatry or psychology or the equivalent.

Submissions: Candidates should be nominated by a peer or mentor. Letters of nomination should describe (briefly) the career achievements and accomplishments of the candidate, and describe the individuals' overall productivity (e.g., papers, books, presentations,), contributions to the field (e.g., teaching, research, new knowledge), and his or her service (e.g., committees, study sections, other). Nominations should be supported by an additional letter of support from a peer and the candidate's CV. All materials should be submitted together.
