Dr Susan Perkin, Fellow and Tutor in Chemistry and Associate Professor of Physical Chemistry, has been awarded a prestigious Philip Leverhulme Prize, in recognition of her research achievements.
Philip Leverhulme Prizes have been awarded annually since 2001 in commemoration of the contribution to the work of the Trust made by Philip, 3rd Viscount Leverhulme and grandson of William Hesketh Lever, founder of the Trust. The prizes recognise the achievement of outstanding researchers whose work has already attracted international recognition and whose future career is exceptionally promising.
In 2016 the Trust offered five prizes in each of the following subject areas: Archaeology; Chemistry; Economics; Engineering; Geography, and Languages and Literatures. Each of the thirty prize winners receives £100,000 which can be used over two or three years to advance their research.
