Umeå Plant Science Centre (UPSC) invites talented young scientists to apply as speaker for the UPSC Symposium for Early Career Plant Scientists in Umeå. This is a great opportunity to present your work in an international context, to meet the UPSC group leaders and identify common research interests.

Our aim is to identify and support the most talented young researchers, to design and obtain postdoctoral fellowship fundings in collaboration with a UPSC group leader of their choice. Invited candidates are thus expected to identify one or several matching UPSC group leaders with whom they would like to work to develop a postdoctoral project and apply for possible fellowships.

The two-day symposium will take place on March 21-22, 2024, in Umeå in Northern Sweden. Only the most promising candidates will be invited and get the chance to present their PhD work at UPSC, visit the research center and discuss potential projects with different research groups and get to know the vibrant city of Umeå, one of Sweden’s fastest growing cities. All costs associated with the symposium will be covered by UPSC.
