Do you know someone who deserves recognition for their contribution to the biomaterials field?
Now is your chance to propose they receive the accolade they deserve.
Biomaterials Science is pleased to announce that nominations are now being accepted for its Biomaterials Science Lectureship 2015. This annual award was established in 2014 to honour an early-stage career scientist who has made a significant contribution to the biomaterials field.
Suzie Pun was the winner of the 2014 Biomaterials Science Lectureship. Suzie is part of the Department of Bioengineering at the University of Washington.
To be eligible for the Biomaterials Science Lectureship, the candidate should be in the earlier stages of their scientific career, typically within 15 years of attaining their doctorate or equivalent degree, and will have made a significant contribution to the field.
The recipient of the award will be asked to present a lecture three times, one of which will be located in the home country of the recipient. The Biomaterials Science Editorial Office will provide the sum of £1000 to the recipient for travel and accommodation costs.
The award recipient will be presented with the award at one of the three award lectures. They will also be asked to contribute a lead article to the journal and will have their work showcased on the back cover of the issue in which their article is published.
The recipient of the award will be selected and endorsed by the Biomaterials Science Editorial Board.
Those wishing to make a nomination should send details of the nominee, including a brief C.V. (no longer than 2 pages A4) together with a letter (no longer than 2 pages A4) supporting the nomination, to the Biomaterials Science Editorial Office by 6th March 2015. Self-nomination is not permitted.
