THE UKEMS YOUNG SCIENTIST AWARD (2002)

            The UKEMS Young Scientist Award is designed to foster, encourage and recognise outstanding achievements in, and contributions to, the field of environmental mutagenesis and genetic toxicology, by young scientists who are members of the society.  It is hoped that this initiative will encourage membership of the society by students and post-doctoral scientists working both within and outside academia.  Interest in the award, together with publicity should encourage older members of the society to take more of an interest in new developments and the needs and wishes of the younger generation.  The award is officially known as 'The UKEMS Young Scientist Award'.  To be eligible, candidates must be age 35 years, or younger, at the time of the nomination, and be an existing member of UKEMS.

            Nominations are required on the attached application forms from two proposers, one of whom has to be a UKEMS member.  A full CV (to include all publications and conference presentations) and a brief justification for the nomination (no more than one typed page) must accompany the nomination form.  Nominations must be submitted by Friday 28 September and six copies should be sent to the UKEMS Secretary.  Applications will be vetted by a committee consisting of five UKEMS members (the President, two UKEMS Fellows and two other members).  The decision of this committee will be final and announced at the 25th Anniversary meeting in Plymouth, where the successful candidate will be presented with a UKEMS Young Scientist medal and a cheque for 250.  Part of the prize will consist of a free annual subscription to Mutagenesis for one year.  The recipient will be expected to deliver a keynote lecture at the Plymouth meeting and it will be a condition of the award that the recipient writes a review on the lecture for publication in Mutagenesis, pending usual peer approval.  The awardee will receive expenses for attending the meeting.
