Early Careers Researcher Conference 2019

We are delighted to invite all BSSS Early Career Members to the 2019 ECR Conference which will be held at The Edge, University of Sheffield. Whether you’ve just started your PhD or Post-Doc or whether you are near to their completion, the BSSS ECR Conference will be an excellent opportunity to present your research, develop your networks and think ahead about careers and job opportunities.

Each delegate will be expected to produce an abstract for either an oral or poster presentation to be delivered over the two days of conference. One of the main objectives of this biennial event is for the society's ECR members to have the opportunity to present their research in a "friendly environment".

Here are five reasons why the BSSS ECR conference should make your 2019 diary:

1) This conference is fully funded for all of our BSSS ECR Members and covers registration, accommodation, workshops, seminars and catering.

2) It will be a friendly environment in which to hone your presenting skills and an informal forum in which to receive positive, constructive feedback.

3) There will be a special focus on job opportunities and further careers within Soil Science.

4) As well as Oral and Poster sessions, there will be engaging workshops, networking breakouts and even the possibility of research walk and talks around the green space outside the venue.

5) By attending, you will be invited to take part in and contribute to a very special BSSS ECR Time Capsule, celebrating the ECR community, which we anticipate unearthing in a reunion event at BSSS 100th Anniversary Celebrations in 2047.
