Colloid Young Researchers' Meeting 2017

Organised by:

SCI's Colloid and Surface Chemistry Group, RSC's Colloid & Interface Science Group and Sheffield Colloid Network

Sheffield, UK

Registration Closed

This event is no longer available for registration.

Synopsis

The young researchers’ meeting is being organised on Monday 10 April at the University of Sheffield. The event is designed to support PhD students, post docs and new industrialists to showcase their new findings and techniques in colloid, surface & interface science.

We are inviting young researchers and scientists in this area to take advantage of this meeting for sharing professional experiences, networking and career development opportunities. There will be talks and posters from delegates, flash presentations, keynotes and a panel session. Keynote speakers and panels will also be young industrialists and academics who recently received their permanent positions or started their own research groups within the last 5 years. The panel session will be question & answer format in order to share their experience on how to get into the career that we dream of. What would you need to know on your first day as a PhD student? What helped them getting into a position they always wanted?

Contributions are expected from a wide range of disciplines in both academia and industry related to colloid, surface and interfaces.
