SOT Awards

Nanoscience and Advanced Materials SS Outstanding Postdoctoral Award

Deadline: December 15

An engraved plaque and cash award will be given to a postdoctoral student whose work represents an outstanding achievement in nanoscience and advanced materials. The amount of the award ($500) will be given to a single winner or divided amongst first, second, and third place winners at the discretion of the Nanoscience and Advanced Materials Awards Committee. Selection criteria include the statement of a clear hypothesis, thoroughness of relevant nanomaterial physicochemical characterization, quality of data interpretation, potential impact, and style. Although preference will be given to Specialty Section and SOT members at large, the primary criterion for this award is the importance of the investigator’s work to the field. Thus, postdoctoral candidates in other Specialty Sections are encouraged to apply.

Application materials include: Accepted SOT abstract, extended abstract (two pages maximum, tables/figures included), student CV, and one letter of recommendation (one from primary advisor).

Please send all applications materials in a single PDF document to Vice President-Elect Christie Sayes.
