The Ian and Barbara Gibbons Award
Scope: The award is for a published piece of work by a junior researcher or researchers that has made a significant impact in the dynein field since the last International Workshop.
Eligibility: Any current PhD student, postdoc or junior faculty (defined as pre-tenure or within 5 years of starting their lab) who has published a first author paper in the dynein field since the last dynein meeting in 2017. Junior faculty who have made a major experimental contribution to a paper on which they are corresponding author are also eligible.
Application: Candidates need to register for the meeting. They will be asked to write a short (max 500 word) justification listing the relevant paper, explaining the work’s impact and their contribution. The deadline for applications is July 1st 2021.
Many papers are the result of collaborations between multiple authors. We encourage applications that recognise this. Either all relevant authors can apply separately and cross reference each other’s applications. Alternatively, one author can apply, list all those who should be considered and their contributions.
Selection: All applications will be considered by the Organizing Committee. The awardee(s) will be selected based on the work considered to have made the greatest contribution to the dynein field since the last dynein international workshop. The Committee will consider the impact of the work and the contribution of the authors. Senior authors may be contacted to clarify the role played by the candidates.
