When we complete our graduation, we think choosing scientific research as a career would consume more time for us to grow and succeed in the field. But it is a prospering field for those who are aware of the immense opportunities available in life science research.

To incorporate confidence in young scientists and to enable them to prosper in their stream at an early age, Science, AAAS, and SciLifeLab jointly award talented early career scientists with Science & SciLifeLab Prize for Young Scientists. Encouraging and celebrating excellence in PhD research, the awardees will be bestowed with a grand prize of 30,000 USD and three other prizes of 10,000 USD for their best PhD thesis work annually. The essays of the four selected winners of the Science & SciLifeLab Prize for Young Scientists will be published in the journal Science. The winners will also be invited to attend the prize ceremony held in Sweden (one week) where they can communicate and connect to the SciLifeLab community. The interested candidates can apply from February 15 – July 15 (2019).

Who can apply?

Life science researchers who have obtained Ph.D. within the last 2 years are eligible to apply. The applicants can choose any of the four categories,

  • Genomics, Proteomics and Systems Biology
  • Molecular Medicine
  • Cell and Molecular Biology
  • Ecology and Environment

How to apply?

Candidates applying for this award should submit a 1000- word essay focusing on any one of the following categories which will be evaluated by an independent editorial team set up by the journal Science.
