UK/Australia Exchange Bursary

UK/Australia exchange bursary to attend ACIS 2019, Hobart, Australia

Funded by the Joint Colloid Group (CISG/CSCG)

A bursary from the Joint colloid group (RSC/SCI) is available for a UK-based Early Career Researcher in colloid and interface science (5 years after PhD) to attend ACIS 2019.

The 9th biennial Australian Colloid and Interface Symposium (ACIS) will be held in Hobart, Tasmania, from 3 to 7 February 2019. ACIS provides a key opportunity for colloid, surface and interface scientists working worldwide to share their findings, network and discuss advancements in their fields of research.

ACIS has sponsored one Australian ECR to attend the inaugural Early Career Colloid meeting (ECColloid2018) to be held at the University of Sheffield, UK on the 17-18 September 2018. To strengthen links between the UK and Australia and reciprocate this initiative, the Joint Colloid Group is offering a £2,000 bursary to sponsor attendance of an ECR (within 5 years of PhD) to ACIS 2019, the costs going towards travel, accommodation and registration. To gain maximum advantage from attendance, it is proposed that the bursary recipient should visit a local laboratory/research group in Australia during their visit.

It is also expected that the bursary recipient would present at the ACIS 2019 meeting – preferably an oral presentation, but as this cannot be guaranteed a poster presentation would be accepted, either way, abstract submission is mandatory.

Support is limited to members of the CISG/CSCG (RSC/SCI).
