Longuet-Higgins Early Career Researcher Prize

Molecular Physics

About the prize

Every year the Editors of Molecular Physics award the Longuet-Higgins Early Career Researcher Prize of $1,000 to a talented, early career writer who has written for the journal in the preceding year and whose article was published within 5 years of being awarded their PhD. Submissions from authors who have not yet completed their PhD are also welcome. The winner is an author who is judged to have made a significant contribution to a top quality paper which has been published in the journal the previous year.

The Editors may also award a number of additional 'Molecular Physics Early Career Researcher Prizes' at their discretion to nominated early career authors who deserve special mention.

We hope that these prizes will highlight and inspire high quality work from the next generation of researchers.

Nominations for the 2019 prize are open until 28th February 2021. The nomination form can be found here.
