Following the decision of the GSCN executive board in Heidelberg to establish three GSCN awards, we would like to ask you for suggestions for two of these awards:
- Young Investigator (German-based) (The candidate should be within 8 year after the doctorate degree and in her/his first faculty/independent position (non-tenured); GSCN membership is not required).
- Female Scientist (based in Germany) (no limitations on the level; GSCN membership is not required).
All awardees will give a presentation in the presidential session at the GSCN conference on 10 September, 2015 in Frankfurt/Main. Each award also includes an amount of 1,500 €.
Candidates are now being evaluated by the awards committee.
The third award “Best publication of the Year” will be selected in July 2015 based on the publications from June 2014 - June 2015 (the first author will be presenting).
If you like to have your publication of the last year to be considered for this award, please send a pdf version to the GSCN Office.
