IRB Barcelona Alumni Excellence Award 2019 - Call Open

The IRB Barcelona Alumni Excellence Awards are aimed to recognise and celebrate outstanding achievements and contributions to science and the scientific community made by young researchers (former PhD students and Postdoctoral Fellows) who completed a significant part of their training and careers at IRB Barcelona and who are now alumni. Additionally, the awards are intended to showcase the impact and value of IRB Barcelona training.

This 4th edition of the award is addressed to former IRB Barcelona PhD students and Postdoctoral fellows who left the Institute between 2011 and 2016. The award recipient will be selected from all eligible candidacies by a jury panel formed by five senior IRB Barcelona scientists. Please read the detailed Terms and Conditions of the award here.

We would like to remind you that candidates can either apply spontaneously or be nominated by IRB Barcelona current staff or by other registered alumni. Both self-nominations and nominations proposed by IRB Barcelona or Alumni members must be sent to irbalumni@irbbarcelona.org no later than 31 January 2019. After this date, the nominated candidates will be contacted so that they can prepare their applications.

The IRB Barcelona Alumni Excellence Award is given with the support of Eppendorf. logo eppendorf
