Following on from the success of the inaugural EaStCHEM Conference for Early-Career Researchers (ECECR), which was held at the University of Edinburgh in August 2016, the organising committee at St Andrews invite you to attend the second ECECR, which will be held at the University of St Andrews (North Haugh) on Thursday 7th September 2017.

The scientific program will showcase research from postdoctoral and early-career chemists from the Universities of St Andrews and Edinburgh, and aims to foster multidisciplinary collaborations between the institutions.

The conference will consist of talks, posters, exhibitions, and will host two keynote lectures from early-career scientists who will share their complementary paths to success in academia and industry.

Above and beyond research presentations, the meeting aims to provide a focussed platform for all early-career researchers thinking:

"What's next for my career?"

We look forward to welcoming you to St Andrews this September,

The ECECR 2017 Organising Committee.
