Young talent award for interdisciplinarity and academic excellence

BioSC Supervision Award 2019: Nomination possible now.

With the Supervision Award, the Bioeconomy Science Center (BioSC) honors junior scientists within BioSC for outstanding achievements in the quality of their supervision of doctoral candidates. The award of the prizes is decided by a panel of experts consisting of renowned scientists on the basis of the nomination proposals submitted. All Core Group and FocusLab heads as well as Core Group and FocusLab PhD students are eligible to submit proposals. The winner(s) will receive an award of up to EUR 25,000 as well as a certificate at the BioSC Forum. The competition is part of the NRW strategy project BioSC. Documents and the call text including the prerequisites for the submission of nomination proposals can be found in the Intranet or the following links (Call and proposal form).

Deadline: 15th September 2019

The expert committee decides primarily on the basis of the excellent supervision and the ability of the scientists to motivate students and doctoral candidates to think interdisciplinary and thus also beyond their own "specialist area". The high quality of the teaching activities performed is also included in the evaluation. The aim of the award is to improve the starting conditions for excellent career development for young scientists.

 

Supervision Award 2018

The Supervision Award 2018 went to the young researcher Dr. Anita Loeschcke. Dr. Loeschcke is a member of the Institute of Molecular Enzyme Technology of the Heinrich-Heine-University Düsseldorf and is the leader of the BioSC FocusLab CombiCom. Dr. Loeschcke was nominated by three of her current PhD students and the nomination was supported by a couple of recommendation letters of former PhD students. Thus, because of her excellent and committing engagement for the interdisciplinary training of her PhD students, the referees decided to grant Dr. Anita Loeschcke this year’s Supervision Award. She received the award, which is endowed with 25.000 €, during the 5th BioSC Forum.

Award ceremony 2014

The development and implementation of a sustainable bioeconomy requires new interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary approaches in which the training of young scientists plays an important role. With the BioSC Supervision Award, the Bioeconomy Science Center (BioSC) is thus awarding young scientists for special achievements with regard to the quality of their supervision of doctoral students in the BioSC Core Groups.

The award [1] will be granted within the framework of the NRW Strategy Project BioSC. The applications are evaluated based on scientific excellence and the quality of supervision by an expert panel. The award is intended to improve the starting conditions for an excellent career development of young scientists. In case of equal qualifications and performance, young female scientists will be preferentially awarded.     

 [1] The use of the fund is subject to the requirements of a project funding according to LHO. Proof of expenses for staff (for example, postdoctoral position after end of doctoral studies under supervision of the awardee), conferences, travel expenses, ,materials and consumables.
