2018 SNO Emerging Investigator Award
Application Deadline: August 17, 2018
The SNO Emerging Investigator designation gives recognition to
emerging scientists and engineers working in the area of
sustainable nanotechnology. In recognition of this designation, a
certificate and cash award will be presented at the 2018 SNO
Conference. Criteria and eligibility include:
1. Investigators who are within the first 10 years post Ph.D. 2. An impactful body of independent work and publications in
the area of sustainable nanotechnology: environmental,
societal, or economic.
3. Attendance at the 2018 SNO Conference in Washington DC, November 8th - 10th
The nomination consists of a single (1-page max) nomination
letter, a second (1-page max) support letter and a 2-page CV (self-
nominations are not accepted). The nomination letter should
describe how the nominee's research impacts the field of
sustainable nanotechnology. The support letter should focus on
the nominee's teaching, service and leadership in the field of
sustainable nanotechnology. Both the nomination and support
letters can be made by SNO members. Nominations are not
restricted to the US or UK.
Letters and CV are due to Dr. Vicki H. Grassian
(firstname.lastname@example.org) by August 17, 2018.
The selected Emerging Investigator will be honored at the SNO
Awards dinner on Friday, November 9, 2018.
WHY JOIN SNO?

presentations at the SNO annual
• Eligibility: Undergraduate, graduate students, and
• Who can Join? Students involved in sustainable nanotechnology research
• How to Join? Sign-up at the registration desk on November 9, 2017 by 2:00 PM. Please check at the registration desk at ~5:00 PM whether you are among the shortlisted participants
• When and Where? Friday, November 9, 2018 after dinner.
• Speak for 100 seconds and win cash awards! Pitch a problem or opportunity connected with your sustainable nanotechnology research in a clear, compelling manner in 100 seconds.
• You should address: Problem or opportunity addressed (What is the real-life problem) Proposed solution(s) (How does your work/approach solve the problem in a unique way?) Potential impacts (What will be the impact/s of your research if you are successful?) Prepare one PowerPoint slide (No animation) and use it during your presentation – please
bring it in a flash drive.
• The slide must have a title for the pitch and presenter's name. (Tips: Your pitch will be judged using a rubric with points for (1) Problem Statement, (2) Proposed
Solution/s, (3) Boarder Impacts, (4) Slide Design, and (5) Poise/Style.
