Toyota Research Institute announces ECS Toyota Young Investigator Fellowship

The Toyota Research Institute of North America (TRINA), a division of Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing of North America (TEMA), in partnership with The Electrochemical Society (ECS) is requesting proposals from young professors and scholars
pursuing innovative electrochemical research in green energy technology.

The purpose of the ECS Toyota Young Investigator Fellowship is to encourage young professors and scholars to pursue research in green energy technology that may promote the development of next-generation vehicles capable of utilizing alternative fuels. Electrochemical research has already informed the development and improvement of innovative batteries, electrocatalysts, photovoltaics and fuel cells. Through this fellowship, ECS and TRINA hope to see further innovative and unconventional technologies borne from electrochemical research.

The fellowship will be awarded to a minimum of one candidate annually. Winners will receive a restricted grant of no less than US$ 50,000 to conduct the research outlined in their proposal within one year. Winners will also receive a one-year complimentary ECS membership as well as the opportunity to present and/or publish their research with ECS.

"Through this extraordinary partnership between ECS and TRINA," said Roque Calvo, ECS Executive Director. "We hope to see more innovative and unconventional technologies borne from electrochemical research."

The deadline for proposals is January 31, 2015 with candidate interviews beginning in February 2015.
