Oxford Instruments NanoScience is proud to sponsor the Lee Osheroff Richardson (LOR) Science Prize for North and South America for research in physical science. The objective of the LOR Science Prize is to promote and recognise the novel work of young scientists working in the fields of low temperatures, high magnetic fields or surface science in North and South America. Oxford Instruments is aware that there is a critical and often difficult stage for many, between completing their PhD and gaining a permanent research position. The company therefore would like to help individuals who are producing innovative work in these fields by offering assistance, both financially and by promoting their research work through sponsoring this prestigious award.

The winner is chosen by the prize selection committee comprising leading physicists from North and South America.

The Lee Osheroff Richardson Science Prize for North and South America consists of:

  • 8,000 dollars cash prize
  • a certificate and trophy
  • support to attend the next APS March Meeting, where the winner is awarded at a special event 'Socialize with Science' held by Oxford Instruments

The opportunity to nominate for the 2018 Lee Osheroff Richardson Science Prize is closed now.
