Call for early career speaker travel award

Early Career PAG 2019

Nominations are now being accepted for the IWGSC Early Career and speaker travel award for the primary IWGSC workshop that will be held at the Plant and Animal Genome Conference XXVII.

Deadline: Friday 7 September 2018.

The IWGSC main workshop is organized by Hikmet Budak (Montana State University) and Kellye Eversole.

The recipient of the award will be expected to give a presentation on his or her work at the IWGSC workshop which will be held on Saturday 12 January 2019 from 8:00 to 10:10 am. The work must be related to the development or utilization of wheat genomic resources. We are particularly interested in talks related to the use and application of the IWGSC RefSeq v1.0.

The individual selected to receive the IWGSC Early Career Award will receive a travel stipend of $1,000 (USD) to help defray the costs associated with participating in the workshop. Additional details on the IWGSC Early Career Award can be found here .

Anyone can submit a nomination, or an individual may self‐nominate. Eligibility is restricted to graduate or post‐doctoral students, scientists who do not have a group, and scientists who have received their Ph.D. within the past 10 years.

The PAG organizers are enforcing rules to ensure diversity of speakers at the various workshops. These include a prohibition on the same individual speaking in the same workshop two years in a row and a prohibition on giving the same or a highly similar talk in more than one PAG workshop.

To nominate an individual or yourself, please send an abstract of the proposed talk and a c.v. to Kellye Eversole (eversole<at>eversoleassociates.com) by 7 September, 23:59 US Eastern Daylight Savings Time. Abstracts are limited to 250 words.
