Young Scientists Research Prizes – 2018 Competition
16 August 2018 @ 6:30 pm – 9:30 pmFree
To foster and recognise excellence in Victoria’s early career scientists, the Royal Society of Victoria has established four prestigious, competitive prizes, open to Victorian students in their final year of doctoral candidature.
Eight finalists will compete across all areas of the Biomedical & Health Sciences, Biological Sciences (non-human), Earth Sciences and Physical Sciences, based on demonstration of the applicant’s excellence in scientific research, ability to communicate scientific information clearly and succinctly to an audience of scientists and members of the general public on their particular research field and to answer questions from the audience.
Of the eight finalists, only four will win the prize of $1250 for their respective categories. Each of the short-listed candidates will be required to give a 15 minute oral presentation (10 minutes presentation, 5 minutes discussion) before a general audience of scientists and members at the Society on 16 August, commencing from 6:30 pm.
Winners will be announced at a special function (following the competition) in the Royal Society of Victoria’s Burke & Wills Room.
