-APOLOGIES FOR ANY CROSS POSTINGS-
Hello list members,
This week sees the start of the second European Meeting on Environmental
Chemistry, 12-15 December in Dijon. We look forward to welcoming many of you
to Dijon and anticipate a highly successful meeting.
This year we are proud to announce the introduction of a new award, aimed at
recognising the achievements of young researchers who have made an
outstanding contribution to our scientific understanding of environmental
processes. The award will be presented annually to a young European-based
researcher: M.Sc., Ph.D. or post-doctoral researcher (first post-doctoral
position within three years of their Ph.D. award). The award will be for
research excellence in the field of Environmental Chemistry.
The European Young Researcher Award is presented in the memory of Dr Gareth
Rieley (1969-1998). Gareth died in 1998 aged 28, himself an exceptionally
bright and committed young researcher, with an already successful career
aimed at understanding the factors which control the isotopic fractionations
at the molecular level in organic components of biological and environmental
significance. Gareth studied at the Organic Geochemistry Unit, University of
Bristol, UK, obtaining his Ph.D. in 1993 in "Molecular and Isotopic Studies
of Natural Environments; Distributions and Stable Carbon Isotopic
Compositions of Individual Lipids".
Further information and details on submitting nominations for the first
award to be presented at the ACE meeting in Geneva, December 2002, can be
