Post-Doctoral Travel Awards

The DMP Post-Doctoral Travel Awards have been established to recognize innovative materials physics research by Post-Doctoral researchers that will be presented at the APS March Meeting. The Awards are supported through the Division of Materials Physics.

We anticipate that there will be ten $1200 Post-Doctoral Travel Awards in 2022 to support participation in DMP Focus Topic sessions at the APS March Meeting sessions. Submission of an abstract to a DMP Focus Topic is required. The selection of the recipients of the DMP Post-Doctoral Travel Awards will be based on the research quality, the impact of the research at the March Meeting, and the innovative contribution of the post-doctoral researcher. The selection committee will consist of members of the Executive Committee of the Division of Materials Physics.

Applications must be completed by December 3, 2021. Advisors will be asked to complete a letter of support by December 13, 2021.

The membership of APS is diverse and global, and the nominees and recipients of travel awards should reflect that diversity so that all are recognized for their impact on our community. Nominations of scientists belonging to groups traditionally underrepresented in physics, such as women, LGBT+ scientists, scientists who are Black, Indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC), disabled scientists, and scientists from outside the United States are especially encouraged.


Nominees for and holders of APS Honors (prizes, awards, and fellowship) and official leadership positions are expected to meet standards of professional conduct and integrity as described in the APS Ethics Guidelines. Violations of these standards may disqualify people from consideration or lead to revocation of honors or removal from office.
