The New Journal of Physics (NJP) is inviting nominations for the New Journal of Physics Early Career Award. The NJP says the award is to recognise the “outstanding contribution to the scientific community” of early-career scientists, and to be eligible, they must have received their PhD qualification less than five years ago, allowing for career breaks. They must also be the author of at least one article submitted, published or accepted for publication by the NJP in the 12 months prior to 30 September 2016, which is the closing date for the award. As well as a certificate and €3000, the winner will receive a full publication charge waiver on one article in the NJP and a 50% waiver on the next two articles. Nominations must be submitted by a senior colleague of the scientist, such as a department head, research group leader or principal investigator.
