Professor Denis Evans has been awarded the Lennard-Jones Lectureship from the Royal Society of Chemistry.
The Lennard–Jones Lectureship and Prize has a long and illustrious history. It was originally awarded in alternate years by the Theoretical Chemistry Group and the Statistical Mechanics and Thermodynamics Group (SMTG) of the RSC and then biennially by the SMTG alone.
A recipient must have made an outstanding contribution to the field of statistical mechanics and thermodynamics and must be of international calibre. The award is open to all nationalities and the recipient is decided by the SMTG Committee.
Since 2001 this award (and the accompanying lecture) has been given in the Thermodynamics series of conferences.
