Medical Physics Group Postgraduate Dissertation Prize
The IOP Medical Physics Group (MPG) is pleased to announce a new student prize, to be awarded annually for the best master’s level dissertation, on a topic relevant to medical physics and completed by a student member of the MPG during the previous calendar year. Any dissertation submitted as a part of an MSc programme of study at a university in the UK and Ireland is eligible for consideration. The award, which has a monetary value of £250, will be made to the dissertation that, in the opinion of the MPG Committee, has made the greatest contribution to advancement of medical physics.
The closing date for receipt of applications is January 31 of each year for dissertations successfully examined in the previous calendar year (irrespective of submission date). For this year’s inaugural prize, however, the application deadline will be 25 November 2013.
Nominations are invited from supervisors or similar persons (e.g. head of department, programme director) in the form of a 2-page (typed) summary of the dissertation and a letter of support from the proposer detailing the merits of the dissertation.
Please send nominations by e-mail the Honorary Secretary, David Eaton, firstname.lastname@example.org who will also be happy to provide any further information required.
