Biophysical Society Theory and Computation Subgroup Award for Early Career Scientists

The Chicago Center for Theoretical Chemistry (CCTCh) at the University of Chicago encourages exceptional early career scientists to submit an application for a new award of the Theory and Computation Subgroup of the Biophysical Society. The CCTCh has sponsored this award.

Submission Deadline: August 1, 2022

Description: This award is for early career scientists working in the topical areas covered by the Theory and Computation (T&C) Subgroup of the Biophysical Society. The award comes with a monetary prize of $1500 which the awardee can use as he/she pleases, including to help defray the costs of travel to the annual BPS meeting to present a talk on Subgroup Saturday in the T&C Subgroup Symposium. The latter talk is a requirement of the award.

Eligibility: An early career scientist working in the topical areas covered by the Theory and Computation Subgroup of the Biophysical Society. Nominees must be members of the Biophysical Society and of the Theory and Computation Subgroup of the Biophysical Society. Nominee must be within the first five years of their first independent appointment at the time of the nomination due date.

Nomination Instructions: Prepare a current curriculum vitae including publication list, a primary nomination letter, and two seconding letters, all as a single pdf file arranged in that order. The publication list should indicate with an asterisk the five most important publications of the nominee. The nomination and seconding letters are not to exceed two pages each in length, with single spaced 11pt font or larger and 1” margins or larger. Please email the single pdf file by August 1 to current Subgroup Chair Gregory Voth at gavoth@uchicago.edu.

The Graduate and Postdoc Women’s Fellowship at D. E. Shaw Research

The Graduate and Postdoc Women’s Fellowship at D. E. Shaw Research is a small gathering of select women graduate students and postdocs pursuing computational or theoretical research in chemistry, biophysics, or related fields from May 13-14. This is an opportunity for women working in these fields to make meaningful connections with other researchers from across the country, discuss their work with DESRES scientists, and explore research projects in detail. Fellowship attendees will come together for two days of virtual activities, including technical presentations, talks by participants, career development discussions, and networking. Read more here
