Are you studying for a PhD in chemistry or just graduated? Have you published cutting-edge research? Are you the supervisor of someone who could be a winner?
The Reaxys PhD Prize is open to talented PhD students or recent graduates conducting original and innovative research in chemistry that demonstrates excellence in methodology and approach. Now in its seventh year, the prize supports advances in chemistry by giving young chemists worldwide who have produced groundbreaking research the recognition and opportunities to extend their network and share knowledge.
The 45 finalists will be invited to present their research at the Reaxys PhD Prize Symposium, where the three winners will each receive $2,000 in prize money.
“Every year, we are impressed by the quality of entries to the Reaxys PhD Prize, and I am sure 2016 will be no exception,” said Dr. David Evans, Scientific Affairs Director at Reed Elsevier Properties SA. “In six years, we have received nearly 2,500 submissions from across the globe. The Prize is an opportunity to identify and support some of the brightest minds in the youngest generation of research chemists.”
