Electrodeposition Division Early Career Investigator Award

The Electrodeposition Division Early Career Investigator Award was established in 2015 to recognize an outstanding early career researcher in the field of electrochemical deposition science and technology. Early recognition of highly qualified scientists is intended to enhance his/her stature and encourage especially promising researchers to remain active in the field.

Nomination Deadline: April 1, annual
Presented: Fall meeting, annual

Recipient qualifications

The recipient will have made outstanding research accomplishments within seven years after earning a PhD degree, as of June 1 of the nominating year. An unsuccessful nomination will automatically remain active for the following two years only until eligibility (i.e. the candidate being within seven years after earning the PhD) still holds. If the candidate applies exactly seven years after receiving the PhD, there will be no repeat consideration.


The award consists of a scroll, a $1,000 prize and complimentary meeting registration. The recipient is expected to present a lecture on her or his research work at one of the Electrodeposition Division symposia at the designate meeting when the award is presented.
