Call for Nominations!
I am pleased to announce that the 2011 Journal of Materials Chemistry Lectureship is now open for nominations. This annual lectureship honours a scientist who has made a significant contribution to the field of materials chemistry.
To be eligible for the Journal of Materials Chemistry Lectureship, the candidate should be in the earlier stages of their scientific career, typically within 10 years of attaining their doctorate or equivalent degree, and will have made a significant contribution to the field.
The recipient of the lectureship will be asked to present a lecture three times, one of which will be located in the home country of the recipient. The Journal of Materials Chemistry Editorial Office will provide the sum of £1000 to the recipient for travel and accommodation costs. The lectureship recipient will be presented with the lectureship certificate at one of the three lectures. They will also be asked to contribute a lead article to the journal and will have their work showcased on the back cover of the issue in which their article is published.
The recipient of the lectureship will be selected and endorsed by the Journal of Materials Chemistry Editorial Board.
The 2010 lectureship was won by Dan Luo, Cornell University, USA.
Those wishing to make a nomination should send details of the nominee including a brief C.V. (no longer than 2 pages) together with a letter supporting the nomination (no longer than 2 pages), to the Journal of Materials Chemistry Editorial Office by 18th February 2011. Self nomination is not permitted.
