Nominate candidates for Wallenberg Scholars funding
Lund University has been invited to nominate candidates for Wallenberg Scholars funding. As previously, the funding constitutes five years of freely available support for the individual’s research, but now with SEK 4 million per year and per researcher. As previously, the vice-chancellor nominates the candidates, so LU’s Research Services have produced internal management rules for the nomination process within LU (see document below).
Nomination proposals must follow the instructions in appendix 1 of the internal management rules and be emailed as a compiled PDF file (as per the instructions) to Tobias Nilsson (tobias [dot] nilsson [at] science [dot] lu [dot] se) at the faculty office by 18 December.
One specific requirement in the faculty’s processing is that each nomination proposal must be accompanied by a co-financing statement (see document below), signed by the head of the proposed candidate’s department. The internal management rules provide further information on general terms and conditions, who is eligible for nomination, etc.
Proposals for candidates can be submitted to the faculty both by departments and by individual researchers. The departments are thus not expected to rank any proposals, but only to support submitted proposals through co-financing statements signed by the relevant head of department. Any questions concerning the management of nominations can be addressed to the incoming pro dean Anders Tunlid (anders [dot] tunlid [at] biol [dot] lu [dot] se).
