YLS2017 - Young Life Scientists' Symposium - call for proposals

Calling all young life scientists …

In this joint venture presented by the Biochemical Society, the British Pharmacological Society and The Physiological Society, you will have the opportunity to work with these societies to provide emerging scientists with an opportunity to network and build new contacts.

Other benefits involve:

  • Add experience to your CV
  • Develop new skills
  • Get a head start on a career in research through conference organisation

Applicants must be prepared to work in a team to organise a one-day themed symposium – from finding a venue and designing the scientific programme, to marketing the conference, assessing abstracts and raising sponsorship.

Getting involved

The Societies are looking for a group of four or five PhD students or Postdocs to be the organizers of YLS2017. Applicants must submit a complete meeting proposal, including a CV for each applicant and a letter of support from supervisors by 21 April 2017.

Note that all proposals must be relevant to the interests of all three sponsoring societies.
