New Investigator Presentation Award at SSC 2021


Returning to the 2021 SSC Annual Meeting is the New Investigator Presentation Award for contributed talks given by new investigators. Entries will be judged on the quality of both the presentation and the underlying research. The award consists of a certificate and a $500 cash prize.

To be eligible for the award, the presenter must be within 5 years of beginning their first academic appointment (i.e., postdoc or assistant professor), and within 10 years of completing their PhD program. Presentations based on joint work with a collaborator who does not fit the definition of a new investigator are eligible, as long as the new investigator presents the work.

To enter, the new investigator must

• submit the abstract of the contributed talk through the meeting website;
• indicate that they wish to be considered for the award during abstract submission in the space provided on the meeting website;
• email the date they obtained their PhD and the date they began their first academic appointment to, so that their eligibility can be confirmed.

Thank you in advance for your interest!
