Applications are invited for the prestigious University of Nottingham 2012 EPSRC Doctoral Prize. The scheme aims to provide career development to the most able students to develop them beyond the end of their PhD, to help launch a successful career in research.
The EPSRC Doctoral Prize is an opportunity for the most outstanding EPSRC-funded PhD students to receive up to two years of additional support following their PhD. The Prize is targeted at excellent scientists and engineers who wish to establish a research career. This scheme is specifically to increase the impact of the PhD in terms of publications, knowledge transfer and outreach activities as a first step into an independent research career. The scheme is designed to offer support and flexibility.
Eligible applicants must have submitted a PhD (viva does not need to have taken place), which was supported by EPSRC in the form of fees and/or stipend, before the Doctoral Prize start date.
The Doctoral Prize aims to develop independent researchers and applicants are encouraged to move into new areas of research and demonstrate the ability to work independently from their former PhD supervisor.
