Established in 2010, this international lectureship honours early-career scientists who have made significant contributions to the field of materials chemistry.
Open to all researchers throughout the world
The Journal of Materials Chemistry lectureship is open to all researchers throughout the world. This includes, but is not limited to, members of the Royal Society of Chemistry and researchers in academia or industry.
All career levels welcome
Nominators do not need to be senior researchers, and we encourage nominations from people at all career levels.
Self-nomination is not permitted
The nominee can handle the administration of submitting their nomination, however, all nominations require a separate supporting letter to be considered for the Lectureship.
As part of the Royal Society of Chemistry, we believe we have a responsibility to promote inclusivity and accessibility in order to improve diversity. Where possible, we encourage each nominator to consider nominating candidates of all genders, races, and backgrounds.
Please note: previous recipients of this lectureship will not be eligible for the current lectureship.
To be eligible for the Journal of Materials Chemistry Lectureship, the candidate must:
- Have completed their PhD
- Be actively pursuing an independent research career within materials chemistry
- Be at an early stage of their independent career (typically this will be within 10 years of completing their PhD OR within the first five years of their independent career, but appropriate consideration will be given to those who have taken a career break, for example for childcare leave, or followed a different study path). The Editorial Office will respond rapidly to any eligibility queries
