News submitted by: T.N.. Phillips | Date added: 10/08/2006
The Vernon Harrison Prize is awarded annually by the British Society of Rheology for the most distinguished PhD thesis in rheology. This aims to recognise excellence, creativity and novelty in research and is awarded to the postgraduate student who, in the opinion of the adjudicating committee, has made the most original and significant contribution to any branch of rheological research (experimental, computational or theoretical) leading to the award of a PhD degree in a given academic year. The prize is partly supported by the Vernon Harrison Bequest.
Entries are now invited for the 2006 award. The prize will be £500, an illuminated certificate and a copy of Rheology Reviews 2006. Any person who plans to submit and successfully defend a thesis in any area of rheology at a higher education institution in the United Kingdom between 1 September 2005 and 31st August 2006 is eligible.
