The Quantum ESPRESSO Foundation, in collaboration with Eurotech, announces the establishment of the Quantum ESPRESSO prize for quantum mechanical materials modeling. The prize, which consists of a diploma and a check of one thousand euros, will be awarded annually in January to recognize outstanding doctoral thesis research in the field of quantum mechanical materials modeling, realized with the help of the Quantum ESPRESSO suite of computer codes. Excellence will be rewarded for both original applications and methodological innovation.

The prize will be awarded by an international panel composed by Stefano Baroni (SISSA, Trieste), Giulia Galli (University of Chicago), Xingao Gong (Fudan University, Shanghai), Mark Hybertsen (Brookhaven National Laboratory, Upton, NY), and Michiel Sprik (University of Cambridge).

Nominations and self-nominations are solicited for freshly graduated PhDs from all over the world. The deadline for submission of nominations for the 2015 prize is October 31st, 2014. Theses defended in the period November 1, 2013 / October 31, 2014 qualify for the nomination. The nomination package must include: copy of the doctoral thesis, a nomination letter and at least two (and no more than four) supporting letters. A pdf copy of the package should be sent to “prize at quantum-espresso.org”.

The inaugural prize will be awarded at the XVII International workshop on Computational Physics and Materials Science: Total Energy and Force Methods, to be held at the Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics in Trieste from January 15 to January 17, 2015.
