“Run for young life scientists, by young life scientists”

Early Career Life Scientists’ Symposia (ECLS Symposia), are one day scientific conferences, organized by PhD students and post-docs for their peers. The organizers are encouraged to promote networking and professional development through social events and careers sessions, as well as the scientific talks and poster sessions. 

The unique format provides the chance for students and post-docs to gain valuable experience in giving formal talks to a peer audience. In addition they provide a unique opportunity for the organizing committee to develop skills involved with running an event.

Each year the Biochemical Society organizes two ECLS events. One Biochemical Society ECLS event and a second in collaboration with The Physiological Society and the British Pharmacological Society as a joint event.

Submit a proposal: Biochemical Society ECLS

The Society is looking for a group of four or five PhD students or Postdocs to be the organizers of ECLS2020. Applicants must submit a complete meeting proposal, including a CV for each applicant and a letter of support from supervisors, by 2 March 2020.
