- Candidate’s scientific CV stating PhD completion date; address; and full contact details.
Who should you nominate?
Early to mid-career scientists (maximum 15 years post completion of PhD).
Scientists who have demonstrated extraordinary contributions to the understanding or development of miniaturised systems.
Terms and Conditions
The Lectureship consists of the following elements:
- A prize of US$5,000. No other financial contribution will be offered
- A certificate recognising the winner of the lectureship
- The awardee is required to give a short lecture at the 2016 µTAS Conference
The award is for early to mid-career scientists (maximum 15 years post completion of PhD).
The award is for extraordinary or outstanding contributions to the understanding or development of miniaturised systems. This will be judged mainly through their top 1-3 papers and/or an invention documented by patents/or a commercial product. Awards and honorary memberships may also be considered.
The winner will be expected to submit at least two significant publications to Lab on a Chip in the 12 months after the lectureship is awarded.
