2018 Call for Nominations

“I won the Geoffrey Barker Medal in 1994 and was particularly delighted partly as this was one of the first times my work had been recognized in this way and also because my former supervisor, John Albery, was a previous winner.”

– ECS member Richard G. Compton, University of Oxford

Royal Society of ChemistryThis is the formal call for nominations for the Geoffrey Barker Medal of the RSC Electrochemistry Group for 2018.

The Geoffrey Barker medal is currently awarded on a roughly biennial basis by the Royal Society of Chemistry Electrochemistry Group to an electrochemist working in the UK or Ireland in recognition of their contributions to any field of electrochemistry. These contributions should be recognized internationally, and should strengthen the standing of UK and Irish electrochemistry.

Detailed information about the award, nomination procedure and required material can be found on the award website.

Nominations should be directed to the Group Secretary, Dr. Mark Symes, via email. The nomination deadline is 17:00 GMT on January 31, 2018.

Corrosion DivisonThe ECS Corrosion Division is currently accepting nominations for the following two awards:

Corrosion Division Morris Cohen Graduate Student Award: established in 1991 to recognize and reward outstanding graduate research in the field of corrosion science and/or engineering. The award consists of a framed scroll and $1,000 prize. The award, for outstanding Masters or PhD work, is open to graduate students who have successfully completed all the requirements for their degrees as testified to by the student’s advisor, within a period of two years prior to the nomination submission deadline.

Herbert H. Uhlig Award: established in 1972 to recognize excellence in corrosion research and outstanding technical contributions to the field of corrosion science and technology. The Award consists of $1,500 and a framed scroll. The recipient is eligible for travel reimbursement in order to attend the Society meeting at which the award is presented.

ECS recognizes outstanding technical achievements in electrochemistry and solid state science and technology through its honors and awards program. We are currently accepting nominations for the Canada Section Electrochemical Award, which was established in 1981 to recognize significant contributions to the advancement of electrochemistry in Canada. The recipient will be recognized for his/her achievements with a gold medal at the section’s 2018 annual meeting.

It has been a few years since we have conferred this award. The last recipient was David Shoesmith of Western Science University in 2010. In 2006, the award was presented to Jeff Dahn of Dalhousie University. Consider your fellow electrochemists and let’s find out whose next!

Please review the full award details carefully before completing the application. I encourage you to submit a nomination and acknowledge the hard work of your peers!

PAEDExtended Deadline for Nominations: November 15, 2017

ECS recognizes outstanding technical achievements in electrochemistry and solid state science and technology through its honors and awards program. We are currently accepting nominations for the Physical and Analytical Electrochemistry Division David C. Grahame Award, which was established in 1981 to encourage excellence in physical electrochemistry research and to stimulate publication of high quality research papers in an ECS journal. This award recognizes Society members who have made outstanding contributions to the field and enhanced the scientific stature of the Society by the presentation of well-recognized papers and at Society meetings.

In spring 2017, Viola Birss delivered “Nanoscale Templates and Scaffolds for Electrochemical Device Applications” as the most recent Grahame award recipient, joining a respected group of award-winning scientists.

The award consists of a framed certificate and a $1,500 prize. The recipient is required to attend the requisite Society meeting and present a symposium lecture that will be sponsored by PAED.

Please review the award rules carefully before completing the application.

Each year, the ECS San Francisco Section assists a deserving student in Northern California in pursuing a career in the physical sciences or engineering through the Daniel Cubicciotti Student Award. The award was created in 1994 in honor of Daniel Cubicciotti: spirited researcher and innovator. Recipients receive an etched metal plaque and a $2,000 prize.

Tianyu Liu received his B.S. in Chemistry from the University of Science and Technology in Beijing, China in 2012, and joined Prof. Yat Li’s group at the University of California, Santa Cruz thereafter. He obtained his Ph.D. in Physical Chemistry in 2017. His research focuses on development of functional materials for electrochemical energy harvesting, conversion and storage. Applications include supercapacitors, microbial fuel cells and photo-electrochemical water splitting. He is a reviewer for several peer-reviewed international journals including Journal of Materials Chemistry A, Nanoscale, ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces, Carbon, The Journal of Physical Chemistry and Electrochemistry Communications. His achievements are recognized by a number of awards including the Chancellor’s Dissertation-Year Fellowship and the Materials Research Society Graduate Student Silver Award. More details can be found on his website: http://liutianyuresearch.weebly.com/.

The San Francisco Section held the Cubicciotti award ceremony on July 13, 2017 on the campus of the University of California, Berkeley where Liu presented “Five Years in University of California-Santa Cruz: From In-lab Researches to Off-campus Activities.”

The annual nomination deadline for the San Francisco Section Daniel Cubicciotti Student Award is in the spring.

ECS would like to congratulate the 2017 Outstanding Student Chapter winner, the University of Maryland for their dedication and commitment to the advancement of solid state and electrochemical science and technology.

The award (formerly The Gwendolyn B. Wood Section Excellence Award) was first created in 2012 to distinguish student chapters that represent and uphold ECS’s mission by maintaining an active student membership base, participating in various technical activities, and organizing community outreach in the fields of electrochemical and solid state science and engineering education.

The University of Maryland student chapter has come a long way since its initial approval in 2011 and has become one of ECS’s most exemplary chapters. The chapter previously won the Outstanding Student Chapter award in 2013 and has been a Chapter of Excellence for the last three years.

Is it possible for an awards program to go full circle? Here at ECS, the answer is a resounding YES!

Consider this: every two years in the fall, The Electrochemical Society honors an outstanding scientist or engineer with the Charles W. Tobias Young Investigator Award and similarly acknowledges the legacy of career achievement through our oldest prize, the Edward Goodrich Acheson Award. In each case, your peers are recognized for scientific contributions within our multi-disciplinary sciences and sustained service to our Society.

So what are we asking of you?

Nominate someone. They say it’s an honor to be nominated because it is.

Who are the best candidates?

The Tobias award applicant will be 40 years of age or younger (by April 1, 2018), whose professional background and Society volunteerism demonstrates a desire for future excellence in teaching and/or research and leadership within ECS. S/he will receive a framed certificate, a $5,000 prize and life membership. The 2016 recipient was Shirley Meng, Associate Professor of NanoEngineering at the University of California San Diego. Dr. Meng is currently the secretary of our largest division and a member of the sponsorship committee.
