Peter Troughton Research Staff Prize

Nominate yourself or another member of research staff to win this prize.

The Peter Troughton Research Staff Prize is awarded to a postdoctoral member of research staff for outstanding performance in their duties. The prize recognises the important contribution that research staff make to the University.

Making a nomination

How to nominate yourself or another member of research staff for the prize.

Nominations for the prize can be made using the nomination form which will be available in spring 2023, for the 2023 prize. To be eligible for the prize, as at the closing date for nominations, nominees must be:

  • on a research-only contract
  • in grade 6 or 7

You will need to give details of the nominee's research work in terms that can be understood by a non-specialist reader.

After the deadline, completed nomination forms will be sent to the nominee's Departmental Director of Research, or delegated departmental contact, so they can comment on the work. The final nomination, with supporting statement, will then be sent to the nominee's Head of Department, Head of Division, or Institute Director, for final approval.

How the winner is chosen

When and how your nomination will be considered.

The Prize Committee will meet in May to consider all nominations from across the University and select a final shortlist of up to four finalists to attend a lunchtime presentation event in June.

The Prize Committee is chaired by the Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Research) and includes the Associate Deans (Research) and the previous year's winner when available.


What you could get if you're selected as the winner.

The winner will receive £1,000 from Peter Troughton.
