Early career researcher Competition

2021 ECR Competition: “Proteomics Highlight of the Year”

The Early Career Researcher Initiative (ECR) of HUPO and the Young Proteomics Investigators Club (YPIC) of EuPA are pleased to announce the seventh ECR Competition to take place at HUPO Reconnect 2021!

The manuscript competition is a unique opportunity for early career researchers to gain visibility in the proteomics community. It serves as a platform to highlight the important contributions that postdoctoral fellows, young clinicians and junior faculty members make to the proteomics field. We will repeat this highly successful event at HUPO Reconnect 2021 taking place from November 15 - 19, 2021.

All ambitious early career proteomics researchers are encouraged to participate in this competition with an already published or accepted manuscript during the 2020 and 2021 calendar years. Three finalists will be selected to present their publications in a parallel session at HUPO Reconnect 2021. Awards will be presented to the finalists during the Closing Ceremony & Awards Session on November 19, 2021. In addition, the three finalists will receive complimentary registration for HUPO Reconnect 2021.

  1. Publication score at review process which takes into consideration the scientific content and novelty of the work; and
  2. Career track record, academic age and research career plans and goals of the applicant.

The three finalists will be selected and notified by the beginning of July 30, 2021. The finalists are required to submit an abstract for HUPO Reconnect 2021 and to provide a biosketch and headshot picture within five business days of receiving their notifications.
