The Wöhler-BASF Young Scientist Prize is awarded to young scientists with doctorates for outstanding, independent scientific work in the field of inorganic chemistry. This work is said to have been completed within the first six years since the independent research began.
The prize is endowed with 5,000 euros and is supported by BASF. It is advertised every two years and is usually awarded as part of the lecture conference for inorganic chemistry.
The Wöhler Association for Inorganic Chemistry in the German Chemical Society announces the Wöhler BASF Young Talent Award . The prize will be awarded on the occasion of the GDCh lecture conference for inorganic chemistry 2024, which will take place from September 16th to 18th. takes place in Munich. The award is given to young people with a doctorate for outstanding, independent scientific work in inorganic chemistry. This work is said to have been completed within the first six years since the independent research began.
All university lecturers and industry representatives with related areas of responsibility are eligible to make nominations. Self-applications are expressly desired. The selection is decided by a jury appointed by the Board of the Wöhler Association, which includes representatives from universities and industry. The prize includes an award certificate and prize money of €5,000.00.
The informal application must be accompanied by a detailed justification of the award's worthiness and an expert opinion from at least one university lecturer. A detailed CV and a list of independent scientific publications must also be enclosed.
Applications and suggestions will only be accepted in electronic form by the GDCh Office, email@example.com, until April 15, 2024.
