Science & SciLifeLab Prize for Young Scientists
YOUR TURN THIS YEAR?
Apply for the Science & SciLifeLab Prize for Young Scientists — a yearly prize awarded to early-career scientists. The prize is presented in four different groups: Cell and Molecular Biology, Ecology and Environment, Molecular Medicine, and Genomics, Proteomics and Systems Biology.
The winners will have their essays published by Science, win up to USD 30,000 and also be encouraged to Sweden to attend the award ceremony. Prepare for a life-changing moment in your scientific career.
Eligible entrants must have been awarded their doctoral degree in 2017 or 2018. The winners from each class will compete for the Grand Prize.
The Science & SciLifeLab Prize for Young Scientists is a global prize, established in 2013, aimed at rewarding scientists at an early stage of their careers. Science/AAAS and SciLifeLab, a coordinated effort of four universities, have joined forces in creating the Science & SciLifeLab Prize for Young Scientists to recognize excellence amongst young researchers from around the world. The Prize was created to recognize that global economic health is dependent upon a vibrant research community and we need to encourage our best and brightest to continue in their chosen fields of research. Considering the difficult economic environment, it is important to provide extra encouragement to young scientists as they begin their scientific careers.
The International Prize is awarded annually to four young scientists for outstanding life science research for which he/she earned a doctoral degree in the previous two years. Each year, a Grand Prize winner is selected from the applicants to receive 30,000 USD in prize money. The three other category winners are awarded 10,000 USD each for their accomplishments. Science/AAAS and SciLifeLab look forward to reviewing the research findings from future entrants.
The grand prize winning essay will be published in Science and essays from the three category winners will be published online.
In addition, all four winners of the Science & SciLifeLab Prize for Young Scientists will be invited to Sweden in December to take part in in a unique week of events in honour of science – with the opportunity to meet with leading researchers in their field. The annual award ceremony and banquet is held in the Grand Hôtel Hall of Mirrors in Stockholm – the original venue of the Nobel prize banquet.
The 2019 categories are:
Cell and Molecular Biology
Research in this category includes cellular and molecular processes at levels ranging from single molecule to single cell to tissue and organ systems.
Genomics, Proteomics and Systems Biology
Research in this category focuses on genomics, proteomics, integrative omics and systems biology approaches to facilitate a comprehensive understanding of living cells, organisms and species.
Ecology and Environment
Research in this category encompasses interactions between organisms and their environment, and how these processes are influenced by human activity.
Research in this category aims at building on the molecular understanding of disease in humans to develop preventive, diagnostic and therapeutic approaches, including individualized medicine.
Application deadline: July 15th, 2019
