Are you an early career scientist carrying out research in areas of interest to the Agriculture Industry?

Early Career Researchers for Agriculture (Plant & Animal) Event
Tuesday 22 March 2016, Birmingham

Are you an early career scientist (MSc or PhD student or in 1st post-doc) carrying out research in areas of interest to the Agriculture Industry? If so you will want to come to this one-day KTN organised event to highlight your work to others in the broad area of UK Agriculture and key figures in the UK Agriculture Industry.


About the event

The day will provide opportunities to network and find out more about the varied careers available in the Agriculture Industry from our industrial speakers and other delegates. 

The emphasis of the day is on the communication of the interest and excitement of your science to a mixed audience to showcase your talents and to develop future career networks.

We are aiming to attract as broad a mixture of academic disciplines as possible to truly represent the science base necessary for a thriving Agriculture sector so encourage delegates from across the full range of Agricultural sectors including horticulture, animal and plant breeding, biochemistry, agronomy, microbiology and the physical and chemical sciences. 

The day will be spilt into two parts, so if you are primarily an animal scientist you will only need to arrive just before lunch, this is to help people travelling from Scotland. 


Prizes for best oral and poster presentations

There will be spaces for oral and poster presentations and prizes will be available for the best presentations. These prizes will be experiences (e.g. visits to companies’ headquarters and opportunities to present to industrial groups) and will provide invaluable experience when you start looking for employment.
