MBG's PhD programme committee has established an MBG PhD Award, named in the honour of Kjeld Marcker, one of the founding professors of our Department.
The prize will be given to exceptional PhD students who have defended their PhD study in the past year. There will not be a fixed number of awards per year, but only truly outstanding candidates will be considered.
The scientific staff members of the PhD programme committee will assess candidates on their overall performance. All activities during the PhD study will be considered, but scientific success will be weighted strongly. Obvious aspects are publications, independence and initiative in the scientific work, popular science activities, but also any other activities within the Department or University.
Self-nomination is not possible, but anyone, including PhD students, is welcome to suggest candidates to the MBG programme committee. Suggestions should include a justification, as well as the CV and publication list of the PhD student.
The prize will be awarded at the annual meeting of the department.
Please send your nomination to Helle Homann.
