ORCHEM Prize

ORCHEM Award for Young Scientists

The Liebig Association for Organic Chemistry in the German Chemical Society awards the ORCHEM Prize every two years to ORCHEM Award for Young Scientists who have qualified through new, original and pioneering scientific work in the field of organic chemistry and who do not yet have a management position or are only just starting out recently appointed.

The prize is endowed with EUR 5000 and is financially supported by BASF. It is usually awarded to two people and includes an award certificate and prize money of ? 2,500.00 per person.

The ORCHEM Prize is traditionally awarded at the ORCHEM Conference . The awardee present the results of their excellent work in a lecture.

Ausschreibung 2022

Die Liebig-Vereinigung für Organische Chemie in der Gesellschaft Deutscher Chemiker schreibt den ORCHEM-Preis für Nachwuchswissenschaftler:innen für die Vergabe im Jahr 2022 aus. Der Preis wird von der BASF finanziell unterstützt und anlässlich der ORCHEM-Tagung, die vom 05. bis 07. September 2022 in Münster stattfindet, verliehen. 

Ausgezeichnet werden sollen jüngere Wissenschaftler:innen, die sich durch neue, originelle und richtungweisende wissenschaftliche Arbeiten auf dem Fachgebiet ausgezeichnet haben und die noch keine Leitungsfunktion haben bzw. erst kürzlich berufen wurden. Etablierte Wissenschaftler:innen, die einen Lehrstuhl innehaben, z.B. W3-Professuren mit Leitungsfunktion, aber auch W2- / W3-Professuren ohne Leitungsfunktion, werden bei der Preisvergabe nicht berücksichtigt. Das Alter spielt nur bedingt eine Rolle, da es aufgrund persönlicher Umstände zu einem Aufschub in der Karriereplanung kommen kann.

Vorschlagsberechtigt sind Hochschullehrer:innen oder Industrievertreter:innen mit verwandtem Verantwortungsbereich. Eigenbewerbungen sind ausdrücklich erwünscht. Über die Auswahl entscheidet eine Jury, der Vertreter:innen aus Hochschule und Industrie angehören, und die vom Vorstand der Liebig-Vereinigung benannt wird. Der Preis wird in der Regel an zwei Personen vergeben und umfasst eine Verleihungsurkunde sowie ein Preisgeld in Höhe von € 2.500,00 pro Person. 

Dem formlosen Antrag sind ein Lebenslauf und ein kurzes Exposé zur wissenschaftlichen Arbeit beizufügen. Bewerbungen und Vorschläge werden ausschließlich in elektronischer Form bis 30. März 2022 an die GDCh-Geschäftsstelle, Dipl.-Biol. Nicole Bürger, n.buerger@gdch.de, erbeten.
