The purpose of the Psi-k Volker Heine Young Investigator Award is to recognize an individual for her or his outstanding computational work in any type of condensed-matter, materials, or nanoscience research involving electronic structure calculations. In 2018, there will be one award of Euro 2500 and four runner-up prizes of Euro 500 each. The prize is sponsored by Nature Publishing Group.
The finalists will compete at a special session of the joint EPS Condensed Matter Division and German Physical Society (CMD/DPG) Spring Meeting in Berlin, during March 11-16, 2018. The Volker Heine Award session will be part of the Symposium: Frontiers of Electronic Structure Theory: Correlated Electron Materials.
Please note that the applicant's PhD certificate must not be dated more than 5 years before the first day of the joint CMD/DPG – EPS Conference (March 11, 2018). Those who have not yet completed a PhD can also apply.
