I am delighted to announce that nominations are now invited for the 2011 Dalton Transactions European/African Lectureship Award. This annual award was established to recognise the achievements of a young African or European inorganic chemist.
Key features of the award
The recipient of the award will be asked to present a lecture and the Dalton Transactions Editorial Office will provide the sum of £1500 to the recipient for travel and accommodation costs. The recipient will also be asked to contribute a Perspective article to the journal and will have their work showcased on the back cover of the issue in which their article is published. There will be just one recipient of the award each year.
The recipient of the award should be in the earlier stages of their scientific career, i.e. in the first 12 years of receiving their doctorate or equivalent degree.
The recipient of the lectureship will be selected by the Dalton Transactions Editorial Board.
Nominations should consist of a nomination letter, a letter seconding the nomination, a cv (maximum 5 pages) and a statement from the candidate (not more than one page) describing their most significant research contributions. Those wishing to make a nomination should send details by email to the Dalton Transactions Editorial Office by 22nd April 2011.
