Jocelyn Bell Burnell Medal and Prize (previously the Very Early Career Female Physicist Award)

Institute of Physics Jocelyn Bell Burnell Medal and Prize for the very early career female physicist of the year 2018.

The IOP and Women in Physics Group invite applications from women at the start of their careers in physics who have made a substantial contribution to the subject and have undertaken activities to support and encourage others in the field. The medal and prize is awarded annually to a woman who is within five years of the award of her first degree in physics (Bachelor's or Master's), not including career breaks, and is either working as a physicist or is engaged in postgraduate study in physics.

The Jocelyn Bell Burnell Medal and Prize seeks to recognise the outstanding work of women embarking on a career in physics and to promote the career opportunities open to people with physics qualifications.

Nominations will be assessed by the Women in Physics Group Advisory Panel with the decision being ratified by the IOP Awards Committee. The medal will be bronze and will be accompanied by a prize of £1,000 and a certificate.

All entries must be received by 31 January 2018.
