B-MRS (Brazilian Materials Research Society) announces the list of winners of “Young Researcher Award” (YRA), an award from the Society bestowed on postdoctoral fellows, this year in partnership with E-MRS (European Materials Research Society).
The winners are:
- Gisele Amaral-Labat (USP – Department of Metallurgical Engineering and Materials)
- Seyedeh Parinaz Akhlaghi (UNICAMP – Institute of Chemistry)
- Kassio Papi Silva Zanoni (USP – São Carlos Institute of Physics)
- Eduardo Guilherme Cividini Neiva (UFPR – Department of Chemistry)
The prize winners will participate in two invitation-only international events: “Forum for the Next Generation of Researchers 2017” (Strasbourg, France, 18-19 November 2017) and “6th World Materials Summit” (Strasbourg, France, 20-21 November 2017). They will have travel expenses covered.
SBPMat is grateful to all the candidates participating and congratulates those selected, wishing them a fruitful participation at the events.
The winners were selected from 20 postdocs who submitted their applications by March 31 of this year. The selection of the YRA winners considered the eligibility criteria explained in the edict, the evaluation of the abstracts of the work to be presented in the events and the evaluation of the CV.
