- have passed their PhD
- be on a research-only contract
- be in grade 6 or 7
The Committee scores against the following criteria with equal weighting:
- Section 1: Presentation and strength of the case
- Section 1: Original contribution to research
- Sections 1&2: Academic quality and key results
- Section 2: Assessment
- Section 2: Other criteria
You will need to give details of your research work in terms that can be understood by a non-specialist reader.
Your nomination form should be sent to your Departmental Director of Research, or delegated departmental contact, so they can comment on your work. The final nomination, with supporting statement, should then be sent to your Head of Department, Head of Division, or Institute Director, for final approval, prior to submission.
Nominations for the 2024 prize will open in spring 2024.
