Competition – the best PhD thesis in the field of structural biology 2022

The Council of the Czech Society for Structural Biology has resolved at its meeting on 25/03/2022 to extend the support for young researchers in the field of structural biology in the form of a Competition for the best doctoral thesis (for obtaining a PhD degree or equivalent). The goal of the competition is to motivate young scientists to work in the field, to support a high level of research and study at Czech and Slovak universities in this field, and to contribute to the involvement of young scientists in the community of structural biologists and related fields.

The prize includes a monetary reward of 20,000 CZK in the form of a scholarship.

Deadline for submitting application: January 15, 2023
Announcement of results: not later than February 15, 2023

More details you can find at PhD Thesis Award.

Questions regarding the Competition should be addressed to Dr. Jarmila Dušková at duskovaj@ibt.cas.cz or to Dr. Jan Dohnálek at dohnalek@ibt.cas.cz.
