It is with great pleasure that I can announce that nominations are now open for the 2022 Peter Troughton Research Staff Prize. This is a prestigious award which aims to recognise the achievements of our very best postdoctoral research staff for outstanding performance in their duties. The award recognises the important contribution that research staff make to the University.

Nominees will be judged by the quality of their research, including key results and their individual contribution to the research. Wider contributions such as external engagement, contributions within the University and entrepreneurial activities will also be considered by the Committee.

Nominations are invited from staff on a research-only contract, in grade 6 or 7, by midday on Friday 15 April 2022. The successful candidate will receive £1,000.
