2014 Call for Nominations: The 2nd Nishina Asia Award

The Nishina Memorial Foundation invites you to nominate candidates for the 2014 (the 2nd) Nishina Asia Award.

The Nishina Asia Award was established in 2012 as one of the activities of the Nishina Memorial Foundation, in order to recognize outstanding achievements by young Asian scientists in the field of fundamental physics. The award is granted to one person every year. A medal and monetary prize of JPY 400,000 will be awarded to the winner. The winner will be invited to the award ceremony on December 5, 2014, and will be invited to visit various universities and institutions in Japan within two weeks, giving talks on the work recognized in the award. The travel expenses will be covered by the Nishina Memorial Foundation.

The intent of this award is to recognize and inspire young Asian scientists early in their careers. Candidates are only accepted up to 15 years after the completion of their PhD. Subject to this limitation, any person from Asia (excluding Japan), who is working in Asia and has contributed significantly to the field of fundamental physics is eligible for consideration. The award winner will be chosen by a selection committee, the winner will be announced in August 2014.

Nominations for candidates are now being solicited. Nominators are requested to send to the Nishina Memorial Foundation a letter of nomination (the application form is available at the foundation’s website below), and copies of one paper of the candidate's most significant publications. Self-nomination will not be considered. Nominations should be sent to the following address by either regular mail or email (email is preferred) until March 31, 2014.
