Open for Nominations: 2017 PCCP Emerging Investigator Lectureship

We are delighted to announce we are now welcoming nominations for the 2017 PCCP Emerging Investigator Lectureship.

Lectureship details
Recognizing and supporting the significant contribution of early career researchers in physical chemistry, chemical physics and biophysical chemistry, the lectureship is a platform for an early career physical chemist to showcase their research to the wider scientific community.

The recipient will receive £1000 to cover travel and accommodation costs to attend and present at a leading international meeting hosted by a PCCP Owner society. The recipient will also be invited to contribute a Perspective article to PCCP.

Launched with great success in 2016, last year’s winner, Dr David Glowacki, delivered the 2016 PCCP Emerging Investigator Lectureship presentation at the Faraday Joint Interest Group Conference 2017.

Eligibility
To be eligible for the lectureship, candidates must:
•    Have completed their PhD 

•    Be actively pursuing an independent research career within physical chemistry, chemical physics or biophysical chemistry.
•    Be at an early stage of their independent career (typically this will be within 10 years of completing their PhD, but appropriate consideration will be given to those who have taken a career break or followed a different study path.)

Selection criteria, nomination and judging process
•    Nominations must be made via email to pccp-rsc@rsc.org using the PCCP Emerging Investigator Lectureship nomination form and a letter of recommendation.
•    Individuals cannot nominate themselves for consideration.
•    Selection will be made by the PCCP Editorial Board at the 2017 PCCP Editorial Board meeting.
•    The winner will be selected based on their nomination, with due consideration given to the letter of recommendation, candidate biography, research achievements, previous PCCP publications and overall publication history.

Submit a nomination
To be considered for the 2017 lectureship, the following must be sent to the Editorial Office
•    A letter of recommendation
•    A complete nomination form

Submission deadline: 15th August 2017

PCCP’s latest Impact Factor: 4.123

Physical Chemistry Chemical Physics (PCCP) is pleased to announce its latest Impact Factor is 4.123*

PCCP is dedicated to publishing cutting-edge original research across the fields of physical chemistry, chemical physics and biophysical chemistry. Last year we published 3443 articles, making PCCP the largest single journal in the physical chemistry field. Our wide reach in the community and rapid times to publication of 54 days** from receipt to acceptance ensure your research gets the attention it deserves.

Lead by our Editorial Board Chair (Seong Keun Kim, Seoul National University) and Deputy Chair (David Rueda, Imperial College London), our expert team of international Associate Editors and dedicated professional Editors ensure that PCCP is a home for urgent Communications & high quality Full Papers, authoritative Perspectives and community-led themed collections.

PCCP is proud to be a society journal and is co-owned by 19 national chemical societies. The journal is published by the Royal Society of Chemistry on a not-for-profit basis for the benefit of the whole scientific community.

We would like to thank all our authors, readers, reviewers and Editorial & Advisory Board members for their continued support
