From Monday 26th June 2023 (12:00) to Tuesday 27th June 2023 (13:00), in celebration of Professor Nora de Leeuw’s 60th birthday, University College London will be holding a two day symposium which will include presentations and discussions on recent experimental and theoretical progress in the investigation of mineral-based materials.
Participation in the symposium event is free, but the number of spaces is limited, so registration is necessary – the last booking date for this symposium is 26th May 2023. Please see here for more information on the symposium.
RSC Advances is sponsoring the event and is offering a single award of £1000 to an early career researcher from Africa wishing to attend and give an oral presentation at this event.
Applications for this bursary are open until 30th April 2023. In order to apply, please send the following information by email to Sarah Sharp (RSC Advances Deputy Editor) at firstname.lastname@example.org, using the phrase “minerals2materials bursary application” in the subject line:
- A short (two page) CV, clearly indicating the year of your PhD graduation (to be considered as early career, our guidance indicates that you should be roughly within 7 years of starting your first independent research position. However, career breaks will be taken into consideration, for example, parental or medical leave). Please include a summary of your educational and work experience details (including any career breaks), and a list of your top 5 publications over the past 10 years.
- A statement (400 words max) about your motivation to attend this event, and about the impact that having access to this bursary will have on your career at this stage.

We will notify all applicants about the outcome of the application within two weeks of the application deadline.
We look forward to reading your applications!
