The Vice-Chancellor’s Research Prizes 2017

10/05/2017


The call for applications to the 2017 Vice-Chancellor’s Research Prizes has been issued across the University.

The call for applications to the 2017 Vice-Chancellor’s Research Prizes has been issued across the University. There are four categories in the suite of prizes which aim to recognise and reward individuals, at various stages of career, who demonstrate exceptional leadership in the areas of research, innovation and impact. As women have been under-represented in previous calls for these prizes we would particularly encourage applications from female applicants. We also encourage applications from across all Faculties and subject areas.

For the 2017 Vice-Chancellor’s Prizes, £3,000 will be awarded under each of the four categories:

  • Research Impact Prize (for research-active staff that have undertaken projects with demonstrable impact beyond academia, as per REF guidelines);
  • Research Innovation Prize (for research-active staff that have undertaken pioneering research projects opening new frontiers, demonstrating novel or interdisciplinary approaches to addressing research questions);
  • Early Career Researcher (ECR) Prize (for researchers within 5 years of gaining a permanent academic post, who have developed a research profile demonstrating excellence);
  • Postdoctoral Researcher Prize (for researchers on a postdoctoral research contract, who have developed a research profile demonstrating excellence).

For further information please contact Dr Stephen McCabe via email: rpo@qub.ac.uk
