A call for applications for the 2016 Vice-Chancellor’s Research Prizes is now being issued across the University.

All four categories in the suite of prizes aim to reward individuals who demonstrate exceptional leadership in the areas of impact and innovation. As women have been under-represented in previous calls for these prizes we would particularly encourage applications from female applicants.

For the 2016 Vice-Chancellor’s Prizes, prizes of £3,000 will be awarded under each of four categories:

1. Research Impact prize;

2. Research Innovation prize;

3. ECR research prize;

4. Postdoctoral research prize.


General Guidelines

Applicants must clearly demonstrate the significance and importance of their research within the submission form, to include supporting documents as required.

Research that is inter-disciplinary in approach is welcomed.

Individuals may nominate themselves, and all Directors of Research are also invited to nominate one person in each category. All applications must be approved by a Head of School / Institute Director before being submitted.

It is required that applications are based on projects or programmes of work that are current or recently completed, and should have taken place, at least in part, at Queen’s University Belfast.

Only one application is allowed for an individual member of staff. If you would like access to exemplars of successful applications, please contact Naoimh Mackel via email: n.mackel@qub.ac.uk

 

The Prizes

Prizes of £3,000 will be awarded under each of the four categories.

Three entries will be shortlisted in each category. The shortlisted applicants will each be invited, along with a guest, to the University’s Chief Executives’ Club Gala Dinner and Awards Ceremony on 18th November 2016, where the winners will be announced and the prizes awarded.
