Research Awards

PhD Award

The Friends of the HZI donate yearly two PhD Awards in order to support young scientists. The awards honour excellent PhD theses from the field of life sciences at a partner university of the HZI.

The PhD Award is endowed with 1.000 Euros, each, and is presented during the Hans Herloff Inhoffen Lecture, which takes place once a year.

The next PhD Award will take place on May 17, 2018, from 3 – 5:30 pm.

Venue: Technical University Braunschweig (Aula,  Haus der Wissenschaft)

This year’s award winners for PhD theses completed in 2017 will be identified in due course.

Please address appropriate suggestions (incl. CV, reference letter, copy of the PhD thesis with date and final grade as well as a publication list) to the Friends of the HZI (e-mail: until March 19, 2018, at the latest.
