The Joanna Fowler Award in the Chemical and Biochemical Sciences is proposed to perceive a remarkable early career (graduate understudy or postdoctoral) lady researcher who has progressed the compound or biochemical sciences through research-led at, or in cooperation, with Brookhaven National Laboratory. The awardee(s) are welcomed to present a lecture facilitated by the BNL Chemistry Division, at which the award will be introduced. The award will be promoted to the more extensive lab community to widen awareness of examination in the chemical or biochemistry sciences and the impact of lady researchers. The award will recognize one young lady researcher every year for work conducted while she is/was an alumni understudy or a postdoctoral research associate who has teamed up with BNL researchers, or worked at BNL as a BNL-supported alumni understudy or RA, or was a client at a BNL client office.
Competitors applying for this grant might be based in the U.S. or any international institution of advanced education or at a U.S. Public Laboratory (counting Brookhaven) during the time of the work that is perceived. Applicants can be U.S. residents, permanent residents, or foreigners. Applicants’ examinations can be in science or any artificially related natural science or materials science field. Applicants can be either graduate understudies or postdoctoral examination partners doing investigate in the synthetic and bio-science fields. The cut-off for the application submission for the following award is November 5, 2021.
Brookhaven National Laboratory conveys discover science and innovative technology to control and secure the country’s future.
