SAPC Principal Investigator of the Year Prize

Deadline for nominations 31st March 2019

How good is your Principal Investigator?

It’s competition time! Here at SAPC, the search is on for the best, the most dedicated, and the most successful primary care Principal Investigator. But we’re not interested in grants, or papers, or prizes. Oh no: we’re interested in something much more important than that. We want to find the star PI who provides exceptional support, leadership and encouragement for their team through the highs and lows of research, careers and life. Does your PI pay particular attention to facilitating opportunities for your development? Are they always looking out for the paper you should be writing, the Fellowship you should be applying for, or the conference you could be presenting at? Are they great at appraisals and reviews, understanding of your needs and concerns, and supportive in your career? Have they gone out of their way to help when things haven’t gone as planned? In short, who gets the prize for being an inspiring and dedicated leader? We want to know! We’re looking for examples of great practice to inspire all Principal Investigators to better support their early career research staff. And if your PI is selected as “Primary Care PI of the Year” there’s a great prize for them to say “thank you” for going the extra mile.
