The Liebig Association for Organic Chemistry in the German Chemical Society awards the ORCHEM Award for Young Scientists who qualify through new, original and groundbreaking scientific work in the field of organic chemistry and who do not yet have a management position or have only recently been appointed became.
The prize is endowed with EUR 5,000 and is 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 award-winning work in a lecture.
The Liebig Association for Organic Chemistry in the German Chemical Society is once again announcing the ORCHEM Prize for award in 2024. The prize will be awarded on the occasion of the ORCHEM Conference, which will take place in Regensburg from September 9th to 11th, 2024.
The award goes to younger scientists who have distinguished themselves through new, original and groundbreaking scientific work in the field and who do not yet have a management position or who have only recently been appointed. Established scientists who hold a chair, e.g. W3 professorships with a management function, but also W2 / W3 professorships without a management function, are not taken into account.
Age only plays a role to a limited extent, as personal circumstances can lead to a delay in career planning.
University lecturers or industry representatives with related areas of responsibility are eligible to make nominations. Self-applications are expressly desired. The selection is decided by a jury made up of representatives from universities and industry and appointed by the Board of the Liebig Association. The prize is usually awarded to two people and includes an award certificate and prize money of €2,500.00 per person.
The informal application must be accompanied by a CV and a short exposé of the scientific work. Applications and suggestions are requested exclusively in electronic form by April 15, 2024 to the GDCh Office, firstname.lastname@example.org.
