Based on an endowment made by Nebion AG and Professor Wilhelm Gruissem in memory of Professor Lars Hennig, the Linnean Centre will award a monetary reward to the best Plant Biology PhD-thesis defended in Uppsala in the forthcoming years. We now seek nominations for the best thesis defended during the autumn term 2018 or spring term 2019.
All Linnean Centre members are encouraged to nominate candidates. The nominations should include the full thesis (pdf-format) as well as a brief motivation. The selected PhD thesis should be outstanding in quality and the student should have matured to a creative scientist.
The awardee will be selected among the nominations by the Linnean Centre steering committee. The award ceremony will take place at the annual Linnean Centre network meeting autumn 2019.
Send your nominations to Mattias.Thelander@slu.se no later than the 12th of June.
