New Journal of Physics Early Career Award
New Journal of Physics (NJP) has always been a journal that embraces innovation. And the potential we see in new researchers is something we think should be celebrated. So in 2015 we created the NJP Early Career Award.
Winner: Dr Angela Demetriadou (Imperial College London, UK) was recognised as being an extremely talented and enthusiastic young researcher.
Winner: Dr Leonardo Mazza (Scuola Normale Superiore, Pisa, Italy) was recognised as being among the most promising young theorists in the area of cold atomic gases.
Runner up: Dr Marcus Doherty (Australian National University, Australia) was highlighted as being one of the principal contributors to the rapidly expanding field of diamond-based quantum technologies.
