Re: Nominations for the 2008 Senturia Prize

We are now accepting nominations for the Third Annual Senturia Prize for Outstanding Thesis in Micro/Nanosystems. This prize is awarded yearly to a graduating doctoral student whose thesis has made outstanding contributions to their field. In addition to receiving an honorarium, the recipient will present a lecture on their research at the MNSS seminar on May 8, 2008.

Advisors, if you have a student whom you wish to nominate, please send an email to by March 7 with the student's name, thesis topic, a brief recommendation, and (expected) graduation date. We will contact the student for a 1-pg summary of their thesis' contributions and significance.

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 by March 7 with your thesis topic, primary advisor, a 1-pg description of your thesis contributions and significance, and your (expected) graduation date. We will solicit a recommendation from your thesis advisor.

Guidelines: This prize is open to doctoral students from the MIT micro/nano community who have recently graduated (since June 2007) or expect to graduate by August 2008. 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. Nominations are due by Friday March 7. The prize winner will be announced by the end of March, and should be available to give the seminar on May 8.

Thank you!
