Facilitating world-class research
Oxford has been invited to submit nominations to the second annual Blavatnik Awards for Young Scientists in the United Kingdom. Building on the US awards launched in 2007, the scheme seeks innovative young scientists and engineers across three subjects:
One nominee in each disciplinary category will be awarded US$100,000 in unrestricted funds and be named a Blavatnik laureate. In addition, two finalists in each category will each receive US$30,000 in unrestricted funds. The awards will be conferred at
a ceremony in London.
Oxford can only submit one nomination for each of the three subjects. Therefore an internal prioritisation process will run.
Departments can submit a total of one nomination to the internal selection panel. Those selected by their department to apply should submit a 200 word rationale for their nomination, a CV, and a 1,000 word research summary to firstname.lastname@example.org by noon on Tuesday 28 May. A multidisciplinary panel will then select the candidates to go forward.
Applicants will be informed of the outcome by 10 June.
Nominees and their work as independent investigators will be evaluated according to the following criteria:
