JEOL Prize Lectures


The RSC ESR Group Committee is pleased to announce the 25th Annual Jeol Prize Talk Competition, sponsored by JEOL.

This competition is open to any doctoral student (typically in year 2 or beyond) and 1st year post-doctoral scientists. The 2021 lectures were selected on the basis of the abstracts submitted, and will be judged on the basis of both scientific content and delivery. The organising committee is grateful to JEOL for their continued sponsorship of this prize.

The schedule for the talks, which will be delivered live during the afternoon session on Friday 16th April 2021 is as follows:
