C8 2012 Young Scientist Prize in Physics of Semiconductors


The IUPAP C8 Young Scientist Prize recognizes exceptional achievement in the study of semiconductor physics by scientists at a relatively junior stage of their career. Two prizes will be awarded in 2012. 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 semiconductor physics.

Nomination Requirements and Deadline for Submission:

A complete nomination packet submitted by a senior nominator will consist of an up-to-date CV of the candidate, an award citation of 30 words or less, publication citation statistics, two letters of support from senior scientists including one from the nominator, up to three salient publications coauthored by the nominee, and a one-page statement by the nominee explaining the overall significance of the work. 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 C8 Chair at r.nicholas@physics.ox.ac.uk by 1st March, 2012.
