Dutch Neurofederation Ph.D. Thesis Prize 2019 and 2020
The Dutch Neurofederation is announcing the PhD Thesis Prize for 2019 and 2020. Because the DNM was cancelled last year due to the corona pandemic, this year’s competition is open to all candidates who successfully obtained a doctorate degree from a Dutch university based on a neuroscience-related Ph.D. thesis dating either 2019 or 2020. The quality of the thesis will be assessed along the following criteria: Significance of the research, advancement to the neuroscience field, the originality of the approach, scope and depth of the thesis, the overall presentation of the thesis, and quality of the writing. Two selection committees of three members will advise the organizing committee who will decide the winner of the Ph.D. prizes. The selection procedure is confidential, and the results are not open for debate.
Deadline for submission of the nominations is Friday 23 April 2021, 23.00 CET. Candidates may nominate themselves or be proposed by their (co-)supervisor. Please send to the below address:
- An electronic PDF version of the thesis with a letter of recommendation by email.
- Three hard-copies of the thesis accompanied with the letter of recommendation.
Both winners each receive €1,000 and in addition the 2020 winner will have the opportunity to give an online presentation about the findings in the thesis during the award ceremony at the Dutch Neuroscience Meeting (9–11 June 2021).
