The Robert Dirks Molecular Programming Prize
The Dirks Prize recognizes exceptional early-career achievement by a researcher working in any area of molecular programming, whether theory, experiment, computation, or a combination thereof. The winner will receive a cash prize and be invited by ISNSCE to present a Prize Lecture at FNANO.
To be eligible, a candidate must not yet have accepted a tenure-track position at the time of nomination (for example, a candidate would typically be a graduate student or a postdoc), but should have the goal of obtaining a tenure-track position and contributing a professional lifetime of outstanding research and scholarly study. However, a nominee for the Nth Dirks Prize that does not receive the prize and subsequently accepts a tenure-track offer in the same calendar year is eligible to be re-nominated one final time for the (N+1)st Dirks Prize.
A nomination consists of:
- the candidate's CV
- a confidential nomination letter (self-nominations are not permitted, re-nominations are welcome)
After a nomination is uploaded, up to two additional confidential recommendation letters may be uploaded by additional recommenders. If you have questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Nominations must be uploaded by February 1, 2021. Additional recommendation letters must be uploaded by February 11, 2021.
