Lectureship and Themed Collection details
Recognising and supporting the significant contribution of early career researchers in physical chemistry, chemical physics and biophysical chemistry, the lectureship is a platform for early career physical chemists to showcase their research to the wider scientific community.
The lectureship recipient will receive £1000 to cover travel and accommodation costs to attend and present at a leading international meeting in 2022. The recipient will also be invited to contribute a Perspective article to PCCP. In addition, selected nominees will be invited to submit to the PCCP Emerging Investigator Themed Collection. You can read the inaugural 2020 Emerging Investigator Themed Issue here.
To be eligible for the lectureship and themed collection, 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 (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 firstname.lastname@example.org using the PCCP Emerging Investigator nomination form and a letter of recommendation.
