The Bob Hay Lectureship


This prestigious lecture is given annually by a younger chemist (within 15 years of the completion of their PhD) working in the area of macrocyclic and/or supramolecular chemistry in its widest sense. The award lecture is given in memory of Professor Bob Hay, one of the pioneers of macrocyclic chemistry in the UK, at the MASC Interest Group meeting that is held annually in December. The award is open to anyone working at an institution in the UK or Eire or who can otherwise demonstrate a strong link to the MASC Interest Group.

Self-nominations for the Bob Hay lectureship should consist of a one-page cover letter outlining suitability for the award, a CV and full publication list highlighting the applicant’s top 20 papers. Supporting statements from nominators are not required and will not be considered.
