The SCI Colloid and Surface Chemistry Group is calling for Nominations for the 2017 Thomas Graham Lecture. The lecture celebrates an interdisciplinary mid-career award in colloid & interface science & technology for researchers and technologists working in the UK who have made outstanding contributions to colloid and interface science or its applications.
Proposers and seconders must be members of SCI or the RSC, although candidates need not themselves be members.
To be eligible, candidates will normally have enjoyed a professional career of more than 15 years duration and they will have worked in the UK for a substantial part of it, even if they are not UK-based currently.
The deadline for nominations is 1 March 2016.
The committee will make a decision at their committee meeting in March 2016, based on the case made by the proposers, together with what is known about the candidates in the public domain. The outcome will be announced soon as possible thereafter and the Lecture will most likely be given at Colloids UK 2017 planned for July 2017.
Those intending to propose a candidate are encouraged to contact the Award Coordinator, Dr Richard Buscall, for further guidance regarding eligibility before submitting their nomination. This can be done via the contact page accessible via the link below.
