iBiology Young Scientist Seminars Competition 2020 is the platform for graduate student or postdoc in any field of biology to share their research story share with the world. However, the Young Scientist Seminars (YSS) is a video series produced by iBiology that features early-career scientists giving talks about their research as well as discoveries. As with all iBiology videos, YSS videos are freely available online and widely viewed by an international audience of students, scientists, educators, and the public.
U.S. and international pre-doctoral graduate students (i.e. Ph.D. candidates) and post-doctoral fellows in any field of the biological sciences are eligible to apply. Although you don’t need to be a compulsory Ph.D. candidate to be eligible for the competition. But however, your research story should be close to publication or have been recently published.
Recommendation letters must be received by the application deadline for full consideration. However, except for the letter of recommendation, application materials will NOT be accepted via email. Applicants MUST submit their materials using the application survey.
Phase 1 – Finalist Selection: Ten to twenty finalists will be chosen based on their submitted application materials (details and application link above).
Phase 2 – Winner Selection: Finalists will give a 20-minute audition talk in English using video conference to iBiology staff. Next, the finalist will receive the information about the 20-minute talk, including the deadline and guidelines before the audition. Furthermore, the selection of 4 winners from a pool of finalists will depend on both the science and clarity of the talks.
The applicants must submit the application for the iBiology Young Scientist Seminars Competition until December 16, 2019 (11:59 pm PT). Applications arriving after the deadline are not eligible for the competition.
