Ural Federal University: Young University Scientists Received Medals of the Russian Academy of Sciences

The Russian Academy of Sciences has summarized the results of the annual competition for young scientists and students of higher educational institutions. Among the winners were representatives of the Ural Federal University. Their research, distinguished by its original formulation and solution of scientific problems, was noted.

For example, Aleksey Popovich received an award for achievements in literature and language. He graduated with a Master’s degree from Department of Russian and Foreign Literature this year. His work “Sacrificial axiology in the polemics of Ivan the Terrible and Andrei Kurbsky and its reception on the eve of the New Age” was highly appreciated.

“My competition work is a series of two articles published in leading international literary journals. They were also included in a collective monograph published as a result of a grant from the Russian Science Foundation. I have studied the embodiment of the archaic categories of “sacrifice” in the correspondence of Ivan the Terrible and Andrei Kurbsky, as well as in Kurbsky’s book “History of the Grand Duke of Moscow” and its reception in the 17th and 18th centuries. The study makes a significant contribution to the restoration of the historical, cultural and authorial-style contexts of Russian literature, its imagery, narrative and rhetorical systems,” says Aleksey Popovich, Research Assistant at the Laboratory of Primary Sources Research.

In the field of chemical sciences, the RAS Medal was awarded to the research team of the Department of Organic and Biomolecular Chemistry at Ural Federal University. It includes graduate students Timofey Moseyev and Aleksey Akulov, with their supervisor Mikhail Varaksin, associate professor at the Department. They received the award for the cycle of works “Development of direct C-H functionalization in azageterocyclic systems as a highly effective tool for creating promising materials for molecular electronics and medicinal chemistry”.

Each winner received a medal, a laureate diploma, a badge and a prize. Its size in 2022 was 25,000 rubles for students and 50,000 rubles for young scientists.
