Since 1986, the Department of Physics at the University of Illinois has presented an annual award to an outstanding young researcher in condensed matter physics in memory of our late colleague, William L. McMillan. Nominations are now being sought for the 2013 McMillan Award winner.
In the spirit of Bill McMillan’s own research, the award recognizes exceptional achievements in theory, experiment, or both. A candidate must have received a PhD after May 30, 2009, to be considered for the 2013 award.
The Award consists of a monetary prize, a plaque, and an invitation to present the annual McMillan Award Lecture at the University of Illinois.
Nominations for the McMillan Award consist of the curriculum vitae of the nominee, a publication list, and the nominator’s assessment of the candidate’s three most important papers in condensed matter physics. For these three papers, copies of the abstract (full copies of unpublished manuscripts) should also be included. Candidates nominated in preceding years, but who are still eligible, will automatically be reconsidered by the committee. However, an update that mentions additional work and its impact will strengthen the nomination.
To submit a nomination, go to http://go.physics.illinois.edu/mcmillan and upload the nomination package as a single PDF file.
