Nominations for the 2022 BTM Willis Prize are now open.
Deadline: Sunday 27 March 2022.

The UK Neutron Scattering Group and the Faraday Division of the Royal Society of Chemistry award an annual prize to outstanding early career scientists who make widespread use of neutron scattering. The prize is named in honour of the founding chairman of the UK Neutron Scattering Group, Professor B T M Willis.

The prize is awarded to an individual in recognition of a single outstanding piece of work, or of a longer term coherent body of work, in the use of neutrons applied to a significant scientific challenge, or alternatively in recognition of a major development in neutron instrumentation or techniques.

The recipient of the prize will be a scientist, in the first 12 years of a research career following the award of a first degree (allowing for career breaks), who has made a substantial contribution to the development or reputation of neutron science in the UK or Ireland.
