PhD /Postdoc Summit

We are pleased to announce a summit for a selected number of postdoctoral fellows and advanced graduate students, to be held on 2 - 3 July 2019 (mid-day 2 July to mid-day 3 July) with the symposium organisers and a few invited speakers.

The main goals of this trainee-focused event are:

(i) to provide a relaxed setting for presentations and discussions of exciting findings at the frontiers of ‘Mechanical Forces in Development’,

(ii) to provide a forum for exploring career development issues,

(iii) to inspire early-career scientists to have a voice at the following Symposium.

This summit represents an exciting opportunity for young scientists to network amongst postdoctoral fellows and graduate students at similar career points and to profit from prominent faculty in attendance.

Attendees are required to participate in both the summit and the symposium.
