The International Advisory Board and BIOMAG 2016 are continuing the collaboration (IFMBE Agreement) with the International Federation of Medical and Biological Engineering (IFMBE) with the James Zimmerman Prize (JZP Charter), that is awarded for significant contribution to novel SQUID-based and new generation of sensor developments, and applications in the field of biomagnetism.
The IFMBE has agreed to sponsor the award on a biannual basis during the BIOMAG conference. The award, presented for the first time in Dubrovnik during BIOMAG 2010, was commemorating 40 years of the SQUID, a celebration of the early pioneering work of James Zimmerman in the application of SQUID technology. We look forward to working with members of the IFMBE in acknowledging the contribution of the biomedical engineering community at large and hope it will encourage new ideas.
Applicants should have made:
1. Significant contribution to novel SQUID-based and new generation of sensor developments, and applications in the field of biomagnetism.
2. Participation is open to postdoctoral fellows, faculty and research scientists attending BioMag 2016. Applicants are allowed to also apply for a Young Investigator Award or Mid-career Achievement Award, if they meet the criteria.
Nominations including a statement by the candidate, the candidate’s CV and 3 letters of support should be sent in a single email to the Biomag/IFMBE Awards committee c/o
Tim Roberts (committee chair) firstname.lastname@example.org by August 1st, 2016
