To recognize outstanding achievement and exceptional potential in crystallographic research demonstrated by a scientist at an early stage of their independent career. Established in 2002 as an annual award, it consists of a monetary award of $1,000 and plaque. The winner will present a lecture at the American Crystallographic Association Annual Meeting.
Scientists involved in crystallographic research in the broadest sense will be eligible for the award. At the time of the closing date for nominations, nominees must be no more than 12 years beyond the awarding of their Ph.D. degree, not including career breaks, and must have begun their first independent (not postdoctoral) position within the past 10 years. Nominees employed in tenure-track academic positions must not yet have received tenure. Nominations must include a nomination letter clearly indicating accomplishments since the nominee began an independent career and assessing future potential. Additional supporting letters and a c.v. for the nominee may be provided but are not requirements. Self-nominations are permitted. Nominees may be employed in academia (including service crystallography), in industry or in government laboratories.
