Applications for Junior Researcher Task Force

This looks like a great opportunity. If I was not teaching that week, I would certainly apply.

Application deadline: 15 July 2015

The 2nd International Conference on Global Food Security will feature a Junior Researcher Task Force, a team of 22 young people responsible for capturing and distributing via social media the big and recurring conversation topics that evolve under each thematic area. Selected members will attend all thematically-related sessions, use Twitter during the conference, and write blog posts immediately following to synthesize the most exciting research and new ideas. These individuals will also be required to attend a one-day “science communications” training the weekend of 10-11 October 2015.

The organizing committee is now accepting applications to be part of this task force. Graduate students, post-docs, and other junior research staff with an established professional social media presence (preferred) or an interest in cultivating one are encouraged to apply. Selected junior task force members will receive FREE registration (courtesy of the support of CICCA) to the conference, however all other costs must be covered by the individual.

Please submit the completed application form along with your CV toc.alman@elsevier.com no later than Wednesday 15 July 2015.
