GSCN Awards

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:

  1. 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).
  2. Female Scientist (based in Germany) (no limitations on the level; GSCN membership is not required).
  3. Best Publication of 2015 (07/14 - 06/15 from Germany; first author will be presenting)

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 awardees will be selected by the GSCN conference 2015 program committee and the executive board.
