The Promising Scientist award is designed to acknowledge female researchers who have performed superior biomechanics research early in their career. It entails a certificate and a monetary award of US$ 5000 for scientific purposes, such as visiting another research group to collaborate on a project. The competition is held each year in which there is an ISB-conference. The winner of the award is expected to give a 30 min. plenary presentation over the recent studies that have contributed to the award at the ISB-congress of the same year.

Requirements: To be eligible for the award, a candidate must (1) be a female member of the ISB, (2) be post-doctoral but not more than 5 years. Each candidate must submit his or her full curriculum vitae, identify at least two first author full articles in peer reviewed scientific journals that she has written in a single area of Biomechanics, and provide interpretative summaries describing the contribution of each article. Please send your applications to ISB Awards Officer, Prof Tim Derrick (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) by February 28, 2021. Additionally, please download the EFSA tick-box questionnaire, answer the questions and send it back to the ISB Awards Officer.
