Carbon Journal Prize for Young Carbon Scientists

Carbon is requesting written nominations from our reader community for the Carbon Journal Prize. From 2013 the award will be given annually on the occasion of the International Carbon Conference where the winner will be invited to present the results of their thesis.

Competition is open to all researchers who have successfully defended a Ph.D. thesis in the calendar years 2010–2012 (the date of the thesis defense, rather than the graduation date, is to be used as the criterion for eligibility).

The nomination should include:
1. Nominee’s CV;
2. A 3-page summary of the major results of the thesis, including a statement on the importance to carbon science;
3. A 1-page nomination letter from the thesis advisor;
4. Documentation of successful thesis defense during 2010–12.

The prize consists of a 2-year electronic subscription to the journal, and travel bursary of up to $1000USD to attend the conference.

The deadline for entry is January 15, 2013. Please submit nominations to the Carbon Editor-in-Chief at
