IUCr Young Scientist Fellowships waterfront

We are happy to offer fellowships, sponsored by the International Union of Crystallography, to young scientists to assist them in attending Aperiodic09.

The Fellowships are to be used solely for travel and subsistence and not as a waiver of registration fees. Young scientists, according to the IUCr, are graduate students, post-graduate students, or post-doctoral fellows with a maximum age of 30 (or in exceptional cases 35). Please note that recipients of a young scientist fellowship will be required to create an entry in the Database of Crystallographers (if not already present). (Please go to http://wdc.iucr.org/ and follow the link to "Create a new entry", filling in professional details as fully as possible.)

Applications should be submitted via E-mail to the Conference Secretariat (enquiries@aperiodic09.org), accompanied by a CV, list of publications, proof of academic status, and one letter of recommendation from a current (or most recent) supervisor. The application deadline for these fellowships has been extended to8 June 2009. Notification of acceptance will be sent by 30 June 2009.
