Re: Nominations for the 2007 Senturia Prize

We are now accepting nominations for the Second Annual Senturia Prize for the Best Thesis in MEMS/NEMS. This prize is awarded yearly to a graduating doctoral student whose thesis has made outstanding contributions to their field. In addition to an honorarium, the recipient will present a lecture on their research at the MNSS seminar on May 10, 2007.

Advisors, if you have a student who you'd wish to nominate, please send an email to either Carol Livermore ( or Joel Voldman ( with the student's name, thesis topic, a brief recommendation, and expected graduation date.

Students, you are encouraged to nominate yourself. If you feel that your work has had significant impact in the field of micro/nanotechnology, please send an email to either Carol Livermore ( or Joel Voldman ( with your thesis topic, primary advisor, a brief description of the thesis contributions, and your expected graduation date. We will solicit a recommendation from your thesis advisor.

Guidelines: This prize is open to doctoral students from the micro/nano community who have recently graduated (Sept 2006 and onwards) or expect to graduate soon (by Aug 2007). Selection will be based upon the strength & impact of the student's research, recommendations by advisors and/or committee members, and any contributions to the MIT MEMS/NEMS community. The prize winner will be announced in the spring edition of the MEMS@MIT newsletter, and should be available to give the seminar on May 10.
