Catalysis Science & Technology

17th International Congress on Catalysis

Awards Nomination 2019

The Catalysis Science and Technology Division of the American Chemical Society is pleased to announce the creation of two awards, which description follows.
ACS Catalysis Science & Technology Division – Early Career in Catalysis 
This award will recognize and encourage accomplishments and innovation of unusual merit by an individual in early stages of their career.  A nominee must have received their Ph.D. in the past 10 years and must also have been a member of the ACS Catalysis Science and Technology division for a two-year period preceding their nomination. Independence and creativity of the researcher in the early stages of their career will be the primary criterion for the award. The award will be granted regardless of race, gender, age, religion, ethnicity, nationality, sexual orientation, gender expression, gender identity, presence of disabilities, and educational background.
Nominations for the award are due 15 November 2019.  The nomination should include:
  • A nomination letter emphasizing the nominee's achievements relevant to the nomination [1000 words]
  • Two letters seconding the nomination [500 words]
  • The nominee's CV [5 pages]
  • A complete list of scholarly work relevant to the nomination
  • At least one letter writer must be a member of the ACS Division of Catalysis Science and Technology (CATL)

The award will be presented annually at the Fall meeting of the ACS at a special session of the ACS Division of Catalysis Science and Technology.  The awardee will receive $1,000 as honorarium and up to $1,500 in travel support.  
All nomination packages (collated in a single PDF file) should be sent by email to Prof. Daniel Resasco (resasco@ou.edu), Chair, ACS Catalysis Science and Technology Division. 
 
Please, make sure that nomination packages conform to the requirements described above. Incomplete packages will not be considered.
 
ACS Catalysis Science & Technology Division – Exceptional Achievements in Catalysis
This award will recognize excellence and scientific leadership in catalysis science and technology by an individual.  The nominees for this award are expected to have demonstrated pioneering research accomplishments in the design or synthesis of catalysts and/or chemical or mechanistic characterization of catalysts leading to recognized advancements in our understanding and application of catalysis. The award will emphasize the impact of a researcher's work in the broad field of catalytic chemistry and catalytic materials or molecules.  Nominations that highlight work for which the nominee has not received recognition in the past are strongly encouraged.  The nominee must also have been a member of the ACS Catalysis Science and Technology division for a two-year period preceding their nomination.  The award will be granted regardless of race, gender, age, religion, ethnicity, nationality, sexual orientation, gender expression, gender identity, presence of disabilities, and educational background.

Selection Procedure

A jury comprising experts from academia, industry and national laboratories selects the awardees. The jury members are asked to disclose any potential conflicts of interest and to disqualify themselves without prejudice when a conflict exists.  The jury is appointed by the Chair of the ACS Catalysis Division who seeks input from the Chair of the Awards Committee and other members of the ACS Catalysis Division Executive Committee.  The identity of the jury members is confidential and only known to the President of the ACS Catalysis Division.  Members of the jury are asked to rank the candidates and provide justification for selecting the top three candidates.  After the first vote the jury may be asked to consider for a second time the candidacy of the top two candidates in selecting an awardee. 

Call for Nominations: ACS Catalysis 2020 Lectureship Award

Submit your nominations for the 9th ACS Catalysis Lectureship for the Advancement of Catalytic Science. The award, cosponsored by the CATL Division and the journal ACS Catalysis, will honor the contributions of an individual or a collaborative team for groundbreaking research in heterogeneous catalysis that strengthens connections between catalysis subdisciplines and has a profound impact on catalysis as a whole.

The 2020 winner will receive a plaque, $3,000 award, and travel and accommodations funding of up to $1500 to attend and present at a symposium in his/her honor at the 258th ACS National Meeting.

Additional details about nomination and eligibility requirements, as well as the nomination form can be found here.

Nominations are due November 1, 2019

If you have any questions, please send them to Award.ACSCatalysis@acs.org
