Group prize

In 2007 the Neutron Scattering Group established a prize for outstanding neutron scattering science.

The prize is named in honour of the founding chairman of the Neutron Scattering Group, Professor B T M Willis. It is intended that the prize will be awarded annually, usually in conjunction with the annual Neutron and Muon Beam Users Meeting, NMUM.

Terms
The prize is awarded to an individual in recognition of a single outstanding piece of work, or a longer term coherent body of work, in the application of neutron scattering to a significant problem in physics, chemistry, materials science, earth science, the life sciences, or engineering, or alternatively in recognition of a major development in neutron scattering instrumentation or techniques.

Eligibility
The recipient of the prize will normally be an early career scientist, i.e. in the first 12 years of a research career (allowing for career breaks) e.g. following an award of a first degree, who has made a substantial contribution to the development or reputation of physics / chemistry / biology in the UK or Ireland.

Nominations
Please forward your nominations to the IOP Neutron Scattering Group Secretary & Treasurer Dr Tatiana Guidi (tatiana.guidi@stfc.ac.uk). The deadline is Friday 7 March 2014.

Prize amount
£250
