We are delighted to announce we are welcoming nominations for the next JAAS Emerging Investigator Lectureship. This lectureship was launched last year to coincide with the 30th anniversary of the journal, and is awarded annually to recognise and support an emerging scientist working in the area of atomic spectrometry in the early stages of their independent career. You can read about last year’s inaugural winners here.
The recipient of the lectureship will present their research at a relevant high-profile international meeting and receive a contribution of up to £2000 to cover associated travel and accommodation costs. They will be awarded a certificate and asked to contribute a Perspective or Research Article to JAAS.
The lectureship is open worldwide to researchers working in atomic spectrometry within the scope of JAAS who are at an early stage of their independent career. The nominee has to be under ten years from gaining their PhD and those who hold a senior permanent position are not eligible for the award.
Nominations must be received by the Editorial Office by June 1st 2016; researchers cannot nominate themselves and members of the Editorial Board judging panel are not eligible to receive the lectureship.
Nominations must include:
• A letter of recommendation, including achievements and evidence of research independence of the nominee
• A brief biography of the nominee, including a summary of education and career
• A list of relevant publications, highlighting those of particular significance as judged by the nominator
The lectureship winner will be selected by the JAAS Editorial Board based on the originality, quality, impact and significance of the candidate’s research, as highlighted in their nomination.

To make a nomination please send the Editorial Office a letter of recommendation, nominee biography and publication list no later than June 1st 2016.
