Open for Nominations: 2020 EES Lectureship

Do you know an outstanding emerging scientist who deserves recognition?

Now welcoming nominations for the 2020 EES Lectureship

Recognising and supporting those at an early stage of their independent career within the fields of energy and environmental sciences, the lectureship is a platform for early career researchers to showcase their research to the wider scientific community. 

The Lectureship is awarded annually to one outstanding young scientist who has published in the journal in the past 3 years. The winner is selected by the EES Editorial Board from a shortlist of authors nominated by the EES community.

The recipient will receive an £1000 honorarium, and will be given the opportunity to attend and present their research at a leading international conference. The recipient will also be invited to contribute a Review-type article to EES.


To be eligible for the lectureship, candidates must:
•    Have completed their PhD

•    Have published in EES in the past 3 years
•    Be working in a research area within the scope of Energy & Environmental Science
Be at an early stage of their independent career (typically this will be 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 using the EES Lectureship nomination form and a letter of recommendation.
