14-15 Feb. 2019: LS2 Annual Meeting 2019, Zurich “PIs of Tomorrow: The Future of Swiss Research”

Dear life sciences postdoctoral fellows,

We are pleased to announce the call for applications to the “PIs of Tomorrow: The Future of Swiss Research” session at the next LS2 Annual Meeting 2019, taking place in Zurich, 14-15 February. This session offers postdocs interested in an academic career an opportunity to present a plenary talk similar in format to a professorship interview seminar. Selected participants will have the chance to get a slot for a 15-minute presentation, which should appeal to a broad audience and in which both the achievements accomplished and the proposed future research are to be explained. The talk will be followed by a 10-minute discussion on various aspects of the proposed activity, as well as on career-oriented aspects of the presenter. A knowledgeable jury panel of professors will evaluate the presentations.

The best presentation will be awarded a prize. However, everyone is a winner, as all presenters in the session will receive feedback from the jury in a one-on-one private session afterward. Moreover, as a participant of the LS2 Annual Meeting 2019, you will have the opportunity to expand or refresh your network in Switzerland, to interact with scientists in and outside your field, and to enjoy a two-day meeting in the beautiful city of Zurich. Only applicants having ties to Switzerland will be considered (i.e. Swiss citizenship, Swiss residency, past or on-going affiliation with a Swiss institution of at least two years by the 2019 meeting).

The following documents are required for the application:

1. Cover letter highlighting your interest and eligibility (1 page)
2. Research statement including past work and future research plans with their scientific impact and significance (max. 300 words)
3. CV with a publication list (max. 2 pages)

Selection criteria:

  • Scientific quality of proposed research
  • Novelty and creativity
  • Relevance and impact
  • Research output
  • Collaborations, networks and outreach
  • Teaching and leadership
  • Mobility

To apply, please follow the guidelines in the application link below, where you will be asked to upload your documents in a single pdf file (max. 5 MB):

Applications must be received by November 1st, 2018. Questions to the session should be addressed to postdocsession@gmail.com. If you are selected, your travel and accommodation fees will be paid by the LS2 organization. We are looking forward to your application and hope to welcome you in Zurich!

Yours sincerely,
