Nomination

What to provide the selection committee

Anybody can nominate a candidate for the ICTP Prize. In order for a candidate to be considered, ICTP needs the following essential information:

  • Candidate's up-to-date curriculum vitae, including birthplace and date, nationality, education, main positions held including present placement and duties, and major honours and awards. Candidates must have obtained their PhD less than 12 years earlier, specifically after 31 December 2009 for the 2021 prize (or after 31 December 2008 for women with one child; after 31 December 2007 for women with two children);
  • Brief description of scientific achievements and proposed citation;
  • Two letters of recommendation.

It would greatly help the selection work, and make it more accurate, if you could provide us with additional information on:

1) Names of additional potential referees or nominators
2) Current phone and email address
3) List of significant publications

Self nominations are not acceptable.

Please submit your nomination by 30 September 2021 via ICTP's online application system.

If you have any questions about the nomination process, please contact director@ictp.it.
