The HUPO Early Career Researcher (ECR) initiative invites all graduate students (Master’s and PhD) and postdocs to participate in the poster competition at HUPO 2022, taking place December 4-8, 2022 in Cancun, Mexico to win awards and cash prizes. HUPO gratefully acknowledges sponsorship of this award by Molecular Omics.
Eligibility criteria: All graduate students (Master’s and PhD) and postdocs can apply for the competition. To participate, graduate students and postdocs only need to indicate during the abstract submission whether they would like to participate in the competition. Applicants must be HUPO members.
How to Apply: During the abstract submission procedure for HUPO 2022, Master’s students, PhD students, and postdocs must indicate if they want to also participate in the poster competition.
The deadline to apply is July 8, 2022 as it coincides with the abstract submission deadline for HUPO 2022.
Selection criteria: 15 posters in each trainee category (graduate students and postdocs) will be pre-selected based on the quality, novelty, and potential impact of submitted abstracts. Posters will be visited by evaluators during the poster sessions at HUPO 2022 to select a winner and runners-up for each level (graduate student and postdocs).
Notification: Presenters of selected posters will be notified prior to the conference that their poster will be evaluated during HUPO 2022.
Prize: $200 for the winner and $100 for two runners-up both at the graduate student and postdoc level. Award winners will be highlighted during the HUPO 2022 Closing Ceremony & Awards Session.
