Stockholm in the second week of December is a special place. The city is alive with excitement as it welcomes and celebrates the new Nobel Laureates at the annual Nobel Prize ceremony.
If you are a recent PhD graduate you could be here too, and receive a rather special prize yourself.
Four winners will be selected for this international award. They will have their essays published in the journal Science and share a total of 60,000 USD in prize money. The winners will be awarded in Stockholm, in December, and take part in a unique week of events including meeting leading scientists in their fields.
Categories for submission include: Cell & Molecular Biology; Genomics & Proteomics; Ecology & Environment; and Translational Medicine. Full descriptions are available on the prize web site.
The 2015 Prize is now open for application and the deadline for submissions is August 1, 2015.
"The last couple of days have been exhilarating. It has been an experience of a lifetime. Stockholm is a wonderful city and the Award winning ceremony exceeds my wildest dreams." – Dan Dominissini, 2014 Prize Winner
