SCI Scholars announced - 2014
Did you know that SCI offers financial support of £5,000 split across two years for early career members approaching the second year of their PhD?
When receiving an SCI Scholarship, as well as financial support, recipients benefit from publishing opportunities, access to a high-calibre network to help launch their careers, automatic membership to the SCI College of Scholars, opportunities to present work and raise their profile within the scientific community. They are also a great asset to the recipients CV.
This year's scholarship applications were assessed by the Early Careers Support Sub Committee and we are pleased to announce that three SCI members have been awarded scholarships in the disciplines of biotechnology, electrochemistry and fine chemicals. Please see the table below for more information:
University of Manchester
Design and synthesis of small-molecule inhibitors of LSD1
Hydrogen generation using chemical hydrides, complex hydrides and reactants that enable water dissociation
University of Oxford
Organic Chemistry (radio-labelling functional groups to produce traceable isotopes for use in PET scanning)
Further information about the 2014 Scholars will be displayed on the SCI website in the coming months and we look forward to receiving their end of year report, which will be published on the website in 2015.
Applications for 2015 Scholarships will open in early 2015.
