Internal Nomination

Q: Do you accept multiple applicants from the same university?
A: We accept all relevant applications from world-leading early career professors at top universities globally that meet the published selection criteria. However, the Agilent Early Career Professor Award is a highly competitive award so we encourage applicants to follow the pre-selection process at their universities prior to applying. A discriminating filter on the university side will help to protect the valuable time of their most talented young faculty. For this reason we typically receive only one candidate application per university each year. Of course, if your university is so fortunate as to have two world-leading early career professors working on research relevant to the current Focus Topic, we would gladly accept both applications.
