Application to this year's Science & SciLifeLab Prize now open! 

Apply for the Science & SciLifeLab Prize for Young Scientists — an annual prize awarded to early-career scientists. 

The prize is presented in four categories: 

Cell and Molecular Biology
Ecology and Environment
Molecular Medicine
Genomics, Proteomics and Systems Biology approaches

Applicants are to submit a 1000-word essay that is judged by an independent editorial team organized by the journal Science. Essays are judged on the quality of research and the applicants’ ability to articulate how their work would contribute to the scientific field.

If selected as a winner, you will have your essay published by Science, win up to USD 30,000 and be invited to Sweden to receive your award, present your research and meet with leading scientists in your field.

Get ready for a life-changing moment in your scientific career – apply now!

Eligibility: entrants must have been awarded their doctoral degree between 1 January 2019 and 31 December 2020.
Application deadline: July 15, 2021


The 2021 categories are: 


Research in this category includes cellular and molecular processes at levels ranging from single molecule to single cell to tissue and organ systems.


Research focusing on genomics, proteomics, integrative omics and systems biology approaches, including computational methods, to facilitate comprehensive understanding of living cells, organisms and species.


Research in Ecology and Environment encompasses interactions between organisms and their environment, and how these processes are influenced by human activity.


Molecular Medicine research aims at building on the molecular understanding of disease in humans to develop preventive, diagnostic and therapeutic approaches, including individualized medicine.
