2020 Journal of Materials Chemistry Lectureship winner: Giulia Grancini

We are delighted to announce that Professor Giulia Grancini has been selected as the winner of the Journal of Materials Chemistry Lectureship 2020. To celebrate, we have put together a collection of her publications in Royal Society of Chemistry journals:

Read the collection

The Journal of Materials Chemistry annual lectureship, established in 2010, honours early-career scientists who have made a significant contribution to the field of materials chemistry.

The Lectureship recipient receives expenses to cover travel and accommodation costs to attend and present at a leading international meeting. The recipient is also invited to contribute an article to one of the Journal of Materials Chemistry journals and to receive a complimentary back cover for the issue in which the article appears.

Giulia is Associate Professor of Chemistry at University of Pavia, Italy, leading the PVsquared2 team and Principal Investigator of the European Project “HYNANO” (ERC H2020 StG 2018), aiming at the development of novel hybrid perovskites materials and innovative functional interfaces for efficient, cheap and stable photovoltaics. Within this field, Giulia contributed to develop new functional interfaces with low dimensional perovskite, as a way to boost device stability.

She is the author of 92 peer-reviewed scientific papers (h-index=46, >15,000 citations). In 2019 she received the USERN prize in Physical Science, the Swiss Physical Society Award in 2018 for Young Researcher and the IUPAP Young Scientist Prize in Optics. She is currently USERN Ambassador for Italy and board member of the Young Academy of Europe. In 2019 she was listed among the highly cited scientists from Web-of-Science. In 2020 she was listed in the “100 experts against stereotypes project” which identified top-italian women scientists. She is also part of the “1MWIS campaign”, a global effort to promote the role of women in STEM disciplines. More can be found at https://pvsquared2.unipv.it

2019 Journal of Materials Chemistry Lectureship – open for nominations

2019 Journal of Materials Chemistry Lectureship – open for nominations

Established in 2010, this lectureship honours early-career scientists who have made a significant contribution to the field of materials chemistry.

The Lectureship recipient receives £1000 to cover travel and accommodation costs to attend and present at a leading international meeting. The recipient is also invited to contribute an article to one of the Journal of Materials Chemistry journals and to receive a complimentary cover for the issue in which the article appears.

Last year’s winner of the 2018 Journal of Materials Chemistry Lectureship was Professor Shaojun Guo from Peking University, China and he will be giving his lectureship research talk at the RSC’s flagship materials chemistry 14 conference in Birmingham, UK.

To be eligible for the Journal of Materials Chemistry Lectureship, the candidate must:

  • Have completed their PhD.
  • Be actively pursuing an independent research career within materials chemistry.
  • 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).
  • Have made significant contributions to the field of materials chemistry.

Self-nomination is permitted, and all new nominations from 2018 will automatically be reconsidered this year.

At the Royal Society of Chemistry we believe we have a responsibility to promote inclusivity and accessibility in order to improve diversity. Where possible, we encourage each nominator to nominate an equal number of men and women.

You are welcome to circulate this information widely and please do ask for nominations from your colleagues and nominate researchers yourself.

To nominate a candidate, email the Journal of Materials Chemistry Editorial Office (materials-rsc@rsc.org) by the 18th of July 2019 with:

  • A brief C.V. of the candidate (no longer than two pages), including the candidate name, year and University of PhD, website link to research profile, current University and job title
  • A letter supporting the nomination (also no longer than two pages)

The Journal of Materials Chemistry A, B & C Editors-in-Chief will select and announce the Lectureship winner, in autumn 2019.

Selection is not based simply on quantitative measures. Consideration is given to all information provided in the letter of recommendation and candidate C.V., including research achievements and originality, contributions to the materials chemistry community, innovation, collaborations and teamwork, and publication history.

Thank you for helping Journal of Materials Chemistry A, B & C and the Royal Society of Chemistry to support early-career researchers. We sincerely look forward to receiving your nominations.
