Eligibility for The Kathleen Lonsdale RIA Chemistry Prize
The Kathleen Lonsdale RIA Chemistry Prize, formally known as the Young Chemist Prize, was established at the Academy in 2000. Since its inauguration, the Royal Irish Academy works each year with the expert members of the Physical, Chemistry and Mathematical committee to select a winner based on the most outstanding Irish PhD thesis in the general area of the chemical sciences.
The prize, kindly sponsored by Henkel, includes an award of €2,000. The winner will also be nominated by the Physical, Chemical and Mathematical Sciences Committee to compete amongst the top young chemists in the world in the IUPAC-SOLVAY International Award for Young Chemists.
- Entrants must have received their PhD degree or completed all PhD requirements from a University or Institute of Technology in the Republic of Ireland or Northern Ireland, including a successful defence of the doctoral thesis during the calendar year 2021.
- The research described in the entrant’s thesis must be in the field of the chemical sciences, defined as “chemistry and those disciplines and technologies that make significant use of chemistry.”
