We are delighted to announce we are welcoming nominations for the next JAAS Emerging Investigator Lectureship. The lectureship is awarded 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 the previous winner here.
The recipient of the lectureship will present their research at a relevant high-profile international meeting (to be agreed with the Editorial Office) and receive a contribution of £2000 to cover associated travel and accommodation costs. They will be awarded a certificate and asked to contribute a Primary Research or Review 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. (*Appropriate consideration will be given to those who have taken a career break or followed a different study path.) The nominee should also have a level of engagement with the journal JAAS and be a published author in it.
Nominations must be received by the Editorial Office by February 28th 2019; 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 Editorial Office will screen each nomination for eligibility and draw up a shortlist of candidates based on the nomination documents provided. 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.
Submit a nomination
To make a nomination please send the Editorial Office a letter of recommendation, nominee biography and publication list no later than February 28th 2019.
