Oxford Instruments NanoScience is proud to sponsor the Lee Osheroff Richardson North American Prize for research in physical science. The objective of the Lee Osheroff Richardson Prize is to promote and recognise the novel work of young scientists working in the fields of Low Temperatures and/or High Magnetic Fields in North America. Oxford Instruments are aware that there is a critical and often difficult stage for many between completing their PhD and gaining a permanent research position. The company therefore would like to help individuals who are producing innovative work by offering assistance both financially and through promotion of their research work.
All candidates should be nominated by a senior member of their department or institute.
The prize is awarded by a committee of senior academics based throughout America.
The Lee Osheroff Richardson Science Prize consists of:
$8,000 cash prize
a certificate and trophy
support to attend a conference of your choice where the prize is awarded and the opportunity given to present your research
Closing date for nominations : 31st of October 2012.
The winner will be announced around February 2013.
