Cluster Awards Outstanding PhD Theses

PhD students now have the chance to win a prize for their doctoral theses. The Excellence Cluster will award two outstanding dissertations in the fields of nuclear, particle and astrophysics per year. The prizes will be awarded for an experimental and a theoretical thesis, respectively. Each prize is endowed with 4000 Euro. This year’s awardees will have the opportunity to present their theses at the Cluster’s Science Week (1-5 Dec. 2008).

Participation is open to all doctoral students who will have completed and submitted their dissertation between 1 October 2007 and 1 October 2008. Candidates cannot apply for the award on their own initiative, but have to be suggested by their supervisors. These need to be members of the Excellence Cluster Universe. Supervisors have to submit a maximum two-page statement on behalf of the nominees.

Closing date for nominations will be 1 October 2008. The winners will be chosen by a committee of the Excellence Cluster Universe.
