The 2017 Albert Hofmann Symposium will recognize the achievements of three outstanding PhD students who have conducted their research in Switzerland by bestowing them with an Albert Hofmann PhD Award for Excellence in Research. Each awardee will receive a cash prize, award certificate, and will be invited to attend the award symposium dinner with the 2017 Albert Hofmann Medal awardee Prof. Wilfred A. van der Donk. Each PhD awardee will present their research during a 20-minute "invited" lecture during the symposium on October 24th.
Eligible candidates will be in the 3rd or 4th year of their PhD work, or recently graduated (after June 1, 2017).
Candidates must be nominated by their research adviser. All nominated students will be invited to submit their CV, list of publications, and a two-page summary of their PhD project to be considered for the award. The deadline to receive all materials is October 6th. The awardees will be announced by October 13th and must attend the symposium on October 24th to receive their award. All nominated applicants are encouraged to attend the symposium and enjoy interacting with Prof. van der Donk over coffee immediately before or after his award lecture. Good luck and we hope to see you there!
