Diamond Light Source endeavours to be a leading edge facility for scientific research, supporting a wide range of users from both academia and industry, thereby delivering benefits to the UK society and economy. Within its aim to deliver the best science possible, Diamond strives to encourage and support researchers in the early stages of their career and has created a number of accolades to recognise those who have carried out exceptional work using synchrotron radiation at the Diamond facility.
The Diamond Medal for Early Career Research is awarded annually to an outstanding early career researcher who has used synchrotron radiation at Diamond Light Source in their research. The 2016 and inaugral medal will be awarded to a researcher working in the life sciences. The 2017 medal will be awarded to a researcher in chemistry and material science, and in 2018 to a researcher working in physics.
The Diamond Young Investigator Award is made every two years, and is open to all current PhD students who have used Diamond Light Source within the course of their PhD work. The award celebrates young investigators whose work has made a significant contribution to the success of a project using synchrotron light. There are two awards made, one in Life Science, and one in Physical Sciences.
Diamond Light Source is the UK's national synchrotron science facility, located at the Harwell Science and Innovation Campus in Oxfordshire.
