The IUPAP C10 Young Scientist Prize recognizes exceptional achievement in the study of the structure and dynamics of condensed matter by scientists at a relatively junior stage of their career. One prize per year will be awarded on the basis of nominations received. The recipient must be no more than eight years post PhD (excluding career interruptions) by the deadline of the competition, and is expected to have displayed significant achievement and exceptional promise for future achievement in an area of experimental, computational or theoretical condensed matter physics.
A complete nomination packet submitted by a senior nominator will consist of:
One of the two support letters must be from a senior scientist who was not a former supervisor of the nominee at either the graduate or postdoctoral level. The entire package should be bundled into a single PDF file and submitted by email to the C10 Chair Y. Fujii by 15 July 2014.
The prize selection committee will consist of C10 Commission members. The Prize winner will be announced on the IUPAP website.
The Prize will consist of €1,000, a medal and certificate.
Winner’s Prize Lecture and Award Ceremony will be held in 2015 at the American Physical Society (APS) March Meeting (2-6 March 2015; San Antonio, TX) in cooperation with Division of Condensed Matter Physics (DCMP) and Division of Material Physics (DMP) of APS.
