GISRUK 2021 Early Career Researcher Workshop

Tuesday 13th April 2021

Calling all Masters’ students, PhD students, post-doctoral and early career researchers in the field of GI Science

This year there is a FREE on-line pre-GISRUK2021 conference Early Career Researcher Workshop on Tuesday 13th April 2021

GISRUK will feature a selection of ECR (Early Career Researcher) sessions. These will be a great opportunity for Masters’ and PhD students to get to know each other before start of the conference, and we will have sessions on ‘What is an (academic) conference?’, Careers (academic and non academic) in GI Science and Research (including grant writing and interdisciplinary collaboration). We will also have a session a couple of weeks before the main conference, dedicated to presenting online, to help you develop your presentations before the conference itself. All Masters’ and PhD students are welcome, as are early career post-docs and researchers. We will also be running a separate session (GISRUK for the uninitiated) for those who are new to the GISRUK conference series and would like to learn a bit more about it.

All participants for the ECR workshop are invited to register for FREE using the following link: or by visiting the conference website:
