Peter Brook Award: Notice

Statutes and Ordinances, 2006, pp. 706 and 725

The Professor of Psychiatry gives notice that candidates for the Peter Brook Award should submit their application to him at the Department of Psychiatry, Level E4, Addenbrooke's Hospital, Hills Road, Cambridge, not later than 19 January 2007.

The value of the Award will be about £350. The purpose of the Award is to encourage students of clinical medicine in research in psychiatry or in the associated basic sciences.

The Award is open to any member of the University who is pursuing or has pursued clinical studies in Cambridge. Candidates are eligible provided that not more than twelve months have elapsed since they passed the Final M.B. Examination.

Candidates must submit either a piece of research, which has been completed or partially completed or a detailed research proposal for a specific piece of research to be undertaken. The research must concern the field of psychiatry or its associated basic science disciplines. The submission may take the form of a published paper or papers, or an unpublished report describing a completed research study.

Alternatively, a proposal may be submitted setting out the detailed background and methods for a possible research project. Submission in a form, which has been used for other related purposes such as a degree, including Part II Tripos projects, will be acceptable. Candidates may contact the Professor of Psychiatry to discuss possible entries.

Candidates' attention is drawn to the general regulations (Statutes and Ordinances, 2006, p. 706), and in particular to Regulations 10 and 11.
