Job Description

The Science & SciLifeLab Prize for Young Scientists is an annual prize awarded to early-career scientists. The prize is presented in four categories:
• Cell and Molecular Biology
 
• Genomics, Proteomics and Systems Biology Approaches
 
• Ecology and Environment
 
• Molecular Medicine
 
Applicants are to submit a 1000-word essay that is judged by an independent editorial team organized by the journal Science. 
Essays are judged on the quality of research and the applicants’ ability to articulate how their work would contribute to the scientific field.

As a winner, you will have your essay published by Science, win up to USD 30,000 and be invited to Sweden where you will receive your award, present your research and meet with leading scientists in your field.
 
Eligible entrants must have been awarded their doctoral degree in 2018 or 2019. 

The winners from each category will compete for the Grand Prize. 

The Grand Prize winner will receive 30,000 USD and be published in Science magazine. 

The three remaining category winners will receive 10,000 USD each and be published in Science online.
