Inaugral EaStCHEM Conference for Early Career Researchers (ECECR 2016)

Organised by:

 SCI's Scotland Group in partnership with EaStCHEM

University of Edinburgh

Registration Closed

This event is no longer available for registration.


PhD students, postdoctoral researchers, academics, and industrialist partners are invited to the very first EaStCHEM Conference for Early Career Researchers.

The scientific programme will showcase postdoctoral/early-career chemistry research from the universities of Edinburgh and St Andrews, and aims to create new, multidisciplinary collaborations between the institutions. Above and beyond research talks and posters, the meeting aims to provide a focused platform for PhDs/postdocs thinking 'What's next for my career?'

The SCI Scotland Group will be supporting the prizes at the event and will be offering bursaries for the session winners to cover registration for and travel to an SCI conference of their choice in 2016/2017.
