The Journal of Polymer Science Innovation Award was established in 2012 to celebrate significant research innovation and achievement in a polymer scientist under 40. The Journal of Polymer Science Part A and Part B is again proud to announce the call for nominations for the seventh year of its international award. The award consists of a symposium in association with the Polymeric Materials: Science and Engineering (PMSE) Division of the ACS and a dinner in recognition of the recipient at the ACS Fall meeting, a $5000 prize, and travel expenses of up to $1000 to the ACS fall meeting for the award year.
Nominations for the prize should consist of a one-page document from the nominator in support of the nominee explaining why the innovative nature of their research deserves recognition and an up-to-date CV from the nominee. Please send nominations to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com before January 18th, 2018.
Past awards were given to young scientists exploring exciting new fields in the chemistry and physics of polymer systems. Previous winners include Christopher Bielawski, currently a Professor of Chemistry at Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology; Ryan Hayward, Associate Professor of Polymer Science and Engineering at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst; Brent Sumerlin, Professor of Chemistry at the University of Florida; Rachel Segalman, Professor in both Chemical Engineering and Materials at the University of California, Santa Barbara; Cyrille Boyer, Associate Professor of Chemical Engineering at the University of New South Wales; and Luis Campos, Associate Professor of Chemistry at Columbia University.
Let the 2018 nominations begin!
