Nominations are now open for the 2017 Natural Product Reports Emerging Investigator Lectureship.
Nominate by 1 September 2016
The Lectureship recognises a researcher who has made a significant contribution to a natural products-related area of the chemical sciences in their early independent career. Nominations can be made by anyone, so why not nominate a colleague, collaborator, or someone whose work you admire today?
Who can be nominated?
To be eligible for the Natural Product Reports Emerging Investigator Lectureship, any candidate should have completed their PhD on or after 31st December 2007, have started publishing independent papers and have made a significant contribution to natural products-related research.
The recipient will be invited to present a lecture at a conference during 2017. They will receive £500 towards travel and accommodation costs. They will also be presented with a certificate and be asked to contribute a Natural Product Reports article.
How to nominate
Those wishing to make a nomination should send the following details to the Natural Product Reports Editorial Office by 1 September 2016:
- The name, affiliation and (if possible) web address of the nominee
- At least a paragraph outlining the reasons for nomination. This should include brief details of the nominee’s contributions to their field. Additional supporting information, for example their CV, would be helpful but is not mandatory for making a nomination.
The Natural Product Reports Editorial Board will draw up a short-list of candidates based on the information provided at nomination. The board will then vote to select the recipient at the Autumn Editorial Board meeting, and the winner will be announced in late 2016.
