The objective of the Young Investigator Award is to showcase research within the epigenetics field of young scientists up to 5 years post-PhD (taking into consideration any career disruption). Applications will be received in the form of a curriculum vitae, which should include a short executive summary, any career highlights (e.g. awards) and a complete publication list.
Applications should be no more than 2 pages (plus an additional 1/4 page to outline any career disruptions). Short-listed finalists will be selected by an independent panel of scientists and will be invited to give an oral presentation at the Epigenetics 2017 conference. The winner will be selected by a judging panel after the presentations and will receive a monetary award and a certificate.
The Australian Epigenetic Alliance encourages all early career researchers to apply for this award as applicants will be assessed on their merits relative to opportunity. Applicants must have registered for the conference and submitted an abstract at the time of application for the award
Applications must be submitted to the Conference Secretariat, via email to firstname.lastname@example.org, by 5pm on Tuesday 1st of August 2017.
