Double Award for Dr Richard Layfield
Rising Star Lectureship and RSC’s JWT Jones Fellowship
Congratulations to Dr Richard Layfield who has been awarded a Rising Star Lectureship by the organising committee of the 41st International Conference on Coordination Chemistry (ICCC-41), details of which can be viewed here.
Nominations for this award were evaluated by an independent committee comprising internationally eminent coordination chemists. Richard and the other lecturers in the Rising Star symposium will be awarded a commemorative plaque at the conference.
Dr. Layfield has also been awarded the RSC’s JWT Jones Fellowship, which will allow him to work as a Visiting Professor at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam in 2015. The visit will form part of a collaborative project on transition metal NHC chemistry between the Layfield group and Prof. Matthias Bickelhaupt, a Professor of Theoretical and Computational Chemistry at the VU.
