About the award
The Biochemical Engineering Journal Young Investigator Award was launched in 2009, originally on a biennial basis, then annually since 2011. The prize recognizes outstanding excellence in research and practice contributed to the field of biochemical engineering by a young community member.
Candidates for the award must be self-nominated and must submit an abstract to the one of two alternating conferences – either ECI's Biochemical and Molecular Engineering conferences (odd years) or ESBES’ European Symposium on Biochemical Engineering Sciences (even years) – to be considered. The selected candidate must also attend the meeting and be prepared to present in order to receive the award. Candidate applications must consist of the following materials:
- Nominee's curriculum vitae
- Statement of up to two pages describing the nominee's accomplishments and impact in the field of biochemical engineering
- A copy of an abstract to be considered for presentation at the Biochemical and Molecular Engineering Conference
- Up to two published works by the candidate
- Up to two letters of support
The above items should be sent by the nominee as a single pdf file to John Coca, email@example.com.
The award consists of a cash prize of 2,500 U.S. Dollars and a plaque presented at the sponsoring conference. The award recipient presents a keynote lecture at the sponsoring conference and is also invited to compose a review article for the Biochemical Engineering Journal and join the editorial board of the journal.
