Schroll Junior Researcher Prize for Excellence

This prize recognizes a junior epidemiologist who has demonstrated excellence in epidemiological research, methods development or application, teaching and/or dissemination, and thus already contributed to development of the field of epidemiology at an early stage of their career.

The Award

The award winner will receive complimentary registration to the Danish Epidemiological Society Fall Meeting 2024, the opportunity to present at the Fall Meeting, a cash award of 5000 DKK, and one year complimentary membership of DES.

Eligibility and Evaluation Criteria

To be eligible, the nominee must have completed their PhD within 4 years at the time of nomination. Parental leave after completion of the PhD, or similar, may be taken into account, and the number of weeks of parental leave may be multiplied by two. The nominee must be employed at a Danish research institution at the time of nomination. Candidates will be evaluated on their contributions to the following four areas within epidemiology:

  • Research
  • Methods development or application
  • Teaching and dissemination

The evaluation will be based on an overall assessment, but candidates may excel in one or several areas. The selection of the Awardees will be made solely on the basis of the candidate’s scientific and professional accomplishments without regard to race, gender, nationality, geographic location, or religious or political views.

Application Documentation

  • A letter of nomination, documenting the candidate’s contribution to epidemiological teaching, dissemination, research, methods development and/or methods application, signed by the nominator (max. 1 page)

The application must be sent to the Board of the Danish Epidemiological Society (dansk.epidemiologisk.selskab@outlook.dk) by the nominator. Deadline for 2024 nomination: September 11, 2024

The nominator may be a supervisor, mentor or collaborator of the nominee, and must be a member of the Danish Epidemiological Society. Each nominator may apply on behalf of one nominee. Applications received directly from nominees will not be accepted. All eligible nominations will be assessed by the Board of the Danish Epidemiological Society; the winner will be contacted directly. Board members of DES are not eligible to nominate candidates nor to be nominated themselves.
