Utlysning av Zetterbergpriset 2021

Uppsala University invites you to nominate one or several candidates for the Hans L. Zetterberg Prize in Sociology to be awarded to a younger researcher, Swedish or foreign, who, with his/her scientific work in sociology, preferably through fruitful combination of theory and practice, has moved the research front forward.

The prize is for a younger researcher (40 years or less the year the prize is awarded), who through published works has reached an acknowledged position but who is not at the end of his/her research achievement/career. The prize is to be awarded yearly and considered international. The sum to be given is SEK 100 000 (currently about US$ 10,000/ € 9,000), made possible by a donation from the Zetterberg family, the first for Sociology at Uppsala University.

The nomination letter should be short and concise, and include a full C.V. of the person you nominate.

Deadline for submitting nominations is April 26 2021. Please send the nomination to samfak@samfak.uu.se
