2011 IUPAC Prize for Young Chemists Announced

The IUPAC Prize for Young Chemists encourages outstanding young research scientists at the beginning of their careers. Five prizes will be given for the most outstanding Ph.D. theses in the general area of the chemical sciences, as described in a 1000-word essay. Each prize consists of USD 1000 cash and travel expenses to the IUPAC 2011 Congress in Puerto Rico. Each awardee will be invited to present a poster on his/her research and to participate in a plenary award session. Awardees also are expected to submit a review article for possible publication in Pure and Applied Chemistry.

Procedures for the 2011 Prize:

a. Entrants must have received their Ph.D. (or equivalent) degree, or completed all Ph.D. requirements including successful defense of their doctoral thesis, during calendar year 2010 in any of the countries that are Members or Associate Members of IUPAC. Entrants need not be citizens or residents of one of these countries at the time the application is submitted.

b. The research described in the entrant’s thesis must be in the field of the chemical sciences, defined as “chemistry and those disciplines and technologies that make significant use of
chemistry.”

c. The IUPAC Prize recognizes only work that was performed while the entrant was a graduate student.

d. Application requires submission of a completed entry form, together with the material listed in items e. and f. The entry form and supporting material should be submitted by e-mail whenever feasible. Additional material may be sent as needed by fax or mail.

e. An essay must be submitted by the entrant that describes his or her thesis work and places it in perspective relative to current research in the chemical sciences. The essay must be written in English by the entrant and may not exceed 1000 words.

f. Two supporting letters are required from the thesis adviser and/or chair of the thesis committee and one additional faculty member. These letters should comment on the qualifications and accomplishments of the applicant and the significance of the thesis work.

g. Complete applications must be received at the IUPAC Secretariat by 1 February 2011. (If submitted through an NAO or Associate NAO, the deadline established by the NAO must be met.) Early submission is strongly encouraged so any questions may be resolved before the deadline date.
