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.

Postdoctoral students and graduate students registered for the EMBO | EMBL Symposium: Mechanical Forces in Development can register for the Summit (separate registration link) by 8 April 2019. The abstracts submitted for the Symposium should be used as applications for the Summit.

After careful review, the scientific organisers will invite the selected applicants (maximum 24 participants) to the Summit. Please note that the registration fee for the Summit is 125 euro and only selected participants will receive the payment instructions, after the abstract review process (results to be announced by the end of April 2019). 

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. A maximum of 24 postdoctoral fellows and graduate students will be chosen for this meeting.

Limited financial assistance is available for the summit in the form of travel grants.

Information required when registering interest during the abstract submission process:
- Name and email address of the primary supervisor.

Please also provide a brief summary of your research interests and what you would speak about at the summit. Also, briefly summarize why you want to attend the summit and what you hope to get out of it (max. 255 characters).
