Nominations are open for the 2013 “Bunsen-Kirchhoff-Preis für analytische Spektroskopie”. This award, from the German Working group for Applied Spectroscopy (DASp), honours the work of young scientists from universities, research institutes or industry who have made excellent contributions to analytical spectroscopy.
The Award consists of an award-document and an amount of €2500 sponsored by Perkin Elmer, and nominations are preferred for work in new and emerging areas, such as spectroscopy in nano compartments, and spectroscopy of biomolecules.
Each nomination should include:
– a letter detailing the candidate’s accomplishments
– a list of publications or recent work
– scientific curriculum vitae stating the age of the candidate, their address and contact details
Nominations should be from a member of DASp but eligibility is open for any scientist meeting the requirements. Self-nomination is excluded. The recipient will be decided by a jury comprising current members of the board of DASp. Further information is available here.
The deadline for nominations is 15 December 2012, and all documents should be sent to:
Prof. Dr. Detlef Günther, President of the Jury for the Bunsen-Kirchhoff Award 2013
