Nominations are open for the 2013 Gottfried E. Noether Young and Senior Scholar awards.

Established in 1999, eight years after his death, the Young and Senior Scholar Awards were created after his widow, Emiliana Noether, and daughter, Monica Noether, bequeathed the American Statistical Association with an endowment fund to ‘recognize distinguished researchers and teachers and to support research in the field of nonparametric statistics’.

‘Noether was a leading scholar in nonparametric statistics with interests in research and teaching. He was Head of the Department of Statistics at the University of Connecticut, Storrs, for 14 years. Before that, he was Professor of Mathematics and Statistics at Boston University for 15 years. Noether was a Fellow of both the ASA and Institute of Mathematical Statistics and an elected member of the International Statistical Institute. He served on the ASA Board of Directors from 1971 to 1973.’

This year’s winners were Professor Guang Cheng of Purdue University and Professor Joseph Gastwirth of George Washington University. Interviews with both winners will be posted soon on Statistics Views.
