The Jacob Biely Faculty Research Prize was established in 1969 and is regarded as UBC’s premier award for research across all disciplines.
The award is named after eminent researcher and professor, Jacob Biely, who joined UBC Faculty on a full-time basis in 1935 as an Instructor in the Department of Poultry Science. He was appointed a full professor in 1950, and two years later was named Head of his Department, a position that he held until his retirement in 1968.
The prize, comprised of $3,000 and a certificate, is awarded annually to a UBC faculty member for a distinguished record of research that has contributed substantially to UBC’s stature as a leading research institution.
The Jacob Biely Faculty Research Prize is open to all fulltime faculty members with tenure or tenure-track at the University of British Columbia. All fields of research are eligible.
