The Council of the Czech Society for Structural Biology has resolved at its meeting on 24/03/2023 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 25,000 CZK in the form of a scholarship and coverage of the regular conference fee for XX Discussions 2024

Deadline for submitting application: January 8, 2024
Announcement of results: not later than February 15, 2024
