BioSC Supervision Award 2018/19

The BioSC Supervision Award call is open now. The deadline for submission is September 21st, 2018.

With the Supervision Award, the Bioeconomy Science Center (BioSC) honors young academics for special achievements with regard to the quality of their supervision service for doctoral students. A panel of recognized scientists will select the three best applicants based on the submitted applications.

The expert committee decides primarily on the basis of the excellent support and the ability of the scientists to motivate students to think interdisciplinarily and thus beyond their own "specialist area". The high quality of the respective teaching activities is also included in the evaluation. The award is intended to improve the start-up requirements for the excellent career development of young researchers.

Core group leaders and graduates are eligible for the proposal. The winners will receive a prize of up to EUR 25,000 as well as a certificate at the BioSC Forum. The competition takes place within the framework of the NRW Strategy Project BioSC.
