Now in its ninth year, the Junior Einstein Award is the oldest and most prestigious prize for young scientists doing research relevant to the photovoltaic industry. The award offers not only an attractive sum of prize money but also opens professional doors for young scientists. As part of the award ceremony, winners meet important figures in the photovoltaic industry.
Past recipients have valued the boost that the award has given their careers.
Graduate students in electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, renewable energy, engineering, chemistry, physics, process engineering or a similar discipline with a thesis focused on solar technology or a related area are eligible to apply. The applicant’s scientific thesis in German or English must have been written between June 2013 and April 2014. The application deadline is April 15, 2014.
A jury composed of well-known photovoltaic experts will choose the recipient of the prize, which will be presented this year during Intersolar, a premier solar-industry trade show, in Munich, Germany.
You can find more information on the award — and the application — on the award’s website.
