The ACS DIC administers (or co-adminsters) a number of awards for chemists in academic, industrial, government labs, and other settings. These awards are in the Professional Awards category.
Call For Nominations Deadline January 15, annually
The Nanoscience Subdivision of the ACS Division of Inorganic Chemistry (DIC) is pleased to solicit nominations for the Inorganic Nanoscience Award, sponsored by the University of South Carolina NanoCenter. The award consists of $3000 made out to the winner and a plaque to be presented to the recipient at the Fall ACS meeting of the award year. The recipient should be based at either an academic institution or a national laboratory in North America. The intent of the award is to recognize sustained excellence, dedication, and perseverance in research and service in the area of inorganic nanoscience. Recipients are expected to be at the mid-career stage, i.e., no more than 10 years post-tenure (or equivalent appointment) and/or between the ages of 36-45 in awarding year. Preference will be given to nominees who have not won an ACS award during the past five years.
Self-nomination is allowed. Each nomination should include (1) a 5-page curriculum vitae; (2) a list of the nominees’ 10 most significant publications; and (3) and a one-page statement that highlights the key research discoveries that merit a national award in the area of inorganic nanoscience. Each nominee should also arrange for three letters of support to be sent separately. The deadline for nominations is January 15th, annually. The award will be announced on, or about, March 1st of the award year.
Nomination packages, in the order noted above, should be combined into a single pdf file with the title consisting of the last name of the candidate (ie: “LASTNAME.pdf”) and emailed as an attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please, also enter the last name of the candidate on the subject line of the email. Please note that email@example.com is not consistently monitored. Accordingly, questions concerning the application process should be directed to the Nanoscience Subdivision Chair for the award year (scroll to bottom of page for a link to full contact information).
ACS Fellows Program
The Division of Inorganic Chemistry (DIC) plays an active role in the ACS Fellow program and is allowed to submit 8 nominations per year. If you are interested in nominating a Division member, you should contact the Chair of the DIC with the names of worthy candidates, as well as the name of someone who would be responsible for the nomination. Names will be considered based on their service to the Division, as well as research, teaching, and outreach. Names of potential nominees should be sent to the Chair prior to August 15 such that they can be discussed at the fall Executive Meeting.
