The McBain Medal is an early-career award for younger researchers working in colloid and interface science in the UK. The deadline for nominations is 15 November 2014. The name of the award winner will be announced in early 2015 and the McBain Lecture will be given at a symposium held in London in the winter of 2015/2016.
Nominations are invited now for this award. Proposers and seconders must be members of either the SCI Colloid and Surface Chemistry Group, or the RSC Colloid and 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 contact Dr Richard Buscall, the Award Coordinator, for guidance before submitting their nomination.
