The McBain Medal is an early-career award for younger researchers working in colloid and interface science in the UK. The award winner will be announced in early 2016 and the McBain Lecture will be given at a symposium held in London in the winter of 2016/2017.
Nominations are invited now for this award. Proposers and seconders must be members of either the SCI Colloid & Surface Chemistry Group, or the RSC Colloid & Interface Science Group, although candidates themselves need not be members.
Self-nominations are permitted, although in such cases the candidate must name two referees who themselves are members (with their permission).
Those intending to propose a candidate are strongly encouraged to contact the Award Coordinator, for guidance before submitting their nomination.
Further information and a link to the on-line nomination form can be found here.
The deadline for nominations is 15 November 2015.
Later this year will also see the 2015 McBain Lecture with talks given by 2014 and 2015 McBain Medal winners, Prof. Rachel O’Reilly, University of Warwick (2014) and Prof. Giuseppe Battaglia, UCL (2015). Details for this event will be announced shortly.
