ECS Battery Division Postdoctoral Associate Research Award
Sponsored by MTI Corporation and the Jiang Family Foundation

Deadline: July 15, 2016

With your submission to a Battery Division Symposia for PRiME in October 2016, we are excited to offer the following new Battery Division award. Consider an application or pass it on!

ECS seeks nominations for the very first postdoctoral associate award in our Honors & Awards Program. The Battery Division recently established this award to encourage excellence among postdoctoral researchers in battery and fuel cell research with the primary purpose to recognize and support development of talent and future leaders therein. The award is generously sponsored by the MTI Corporation and the Jiang Family Foundation.

The Award: an appropriately worded scroll, a $2,000 prize and complimentary meeting registration at the designated meeting. Two awards will be granted each year. Winners are also invited to present on a subject related to the contributions for which the award is being presented.

The Recipient: Ideal candidates must be under (or at) the age of 35 at the nomination deadline date. Only current members of The Electrochemical Society may be considered. The candidates should show exceptional promise that includes leadership, advocacy, outreach or teaching, in addition to excellence in scientific research during their postdoctoral assignment.

A complete nomination package would include:

  • Electronic Nomination Form
  • Cover letter with a statement of research interests and accomplishments
  • Support letter from the postdoctoral advisor
  • Copy of the publication(s) that describe the science and technology achievement.

Take some time to review the award details and consider becoming the very first Battery Division Postdoctoral Award winner! PRiME will be a milestone meeting for ECS and the Battery Division — with over 1,000 abstract submissions, the Battery Division will make up ~ 25% of talks at the meeting. Two of those presentations can be for the new award! Apply today!
