The Caldarelli Prize in Magnetic Resonance 2023

We are asking for nominations for The Caldarelli Prize in Magnetic Resonance, which will be awarded during the Alpine Conference on Magnetic Resonance in Solids 2023.

The prize is aiming to recognise the contribution of young scientists who made a personal and recent ground-breaking contribution to the field of magnetic resonance in solids. Scientists are eligible within 10 years after completing their Ph.D. degree (extensions are possible under certain circumstances).

The prize is dedicated to the memory of Stefano Caldarelli, who was one of the founders of the Alpine Conference, and is supported by Bruker Biospin.

Nominations must be received by April 28th, 2023, and include:

  • Nomination Letter (including the nominee’s name, affiliation and email), optionally up to 2 seconding letters;
