Rutherford plasma physics communication prize

The closing date for this opportunity has been extended. The previous deadline of 16 February has been extended to 2 March 2018. All other call details remain unchanged.

The Institute of Physics, sponsored by the Science and Technology Facilities Council’s Central Laser Facility, invites applications for the Rutherford plasma physics communication prize. This recognises outreach and communications of plasma physics to non-experts and the public.

All members of the plasma physics community may submit nominations. Self-nominations are welcome.

The prize is worth £500 and the winner will be invited to present at the plasma physics conference.
