Roger Taylor Award

The Roger Taylor Award is a travel grant for students and early career researchers who have achieved up to ten years of postdoctoral experience to attend the 229th meeting of The Electrochemical Society and submit to Symposium B: Carbon Nanostructures and Devices. The Roger Taylor Award is generously funded by the Taylor family as an endowment to the British Carbon Group.

Recipient Qualifications

This international award is open to scientists living and working in any country and of any nationality. Anyone living or working, at the time of the conference, in the country where the conference is held is not eligible. As the 229th ECS meeting takes place in the USA, the 2016 Roger Taylor Award is not open to U.S. residents or employees.

The award is made upon the basis of an appraisal of the following three requirements:

  • the extended abstract or paper as submitted to the conference (only one paper is permitted for the purposes of the award),
  • a short CV (with the date of the award of PhD if applicable) and
  • a commentary provided normally by the candidate’s supervisor or close colleague.

Self-nomination is not permitted.

ECS elections are now open! Members can vote now.

Thinking isn’t agreeing or disagreeing. That’s voting.

Did you know

The very first President of ECS was Joseph W. Richards, a metallurgical engineer of international reputation? Prof. Richards was a charter member and principal organizer of The Electrochemical Society. He was the only ECS president to serve two consecutive terms, in 1902 and 1903.

Fast forward to over one hundred years later where you, as a valued voting member of The Electrochemical Society, have to power to select the next president, vice-president and secretary. The exceptional candidate pool are proven professionals within the field who are also dedicated Society volunteers.

Take a moment to vote for those who will continue to lead the organization as a steward of electrochemical & solid state science and technology.
