June - August 2021

Against the background of the COVID-19 pandemic, the number of opportunities available for ECRs to participate in and present their research at national and international meetings/ conferences has significantly reduced. To address this, a virtual seminar series, Stay Connected Neuro, was organised in 2020 in North America to give PhD students and postdoctoral researchers the opportunity to present their research. Given the ongoing issues with domestic travel and restrictions imposed on international travel, we would like to organise a similar seminar series in Australia to be held from June to August in 2021.

For this series, each session, to be held on Fridays (4-5pm), will host two ECRs who will present their research findings (recently published/unpublished data) in 15-20 mins time slots followed by 15-20 mins of questions and feedback. We will put out a call for Applications to present from April to May. Applicants will be asked to submit a 1-page CV, an abstract (200 words), a statement outlining why they would like to present their data and what they hope to gain as well as a summary statement for social media.
