Early Career Researcher Symposium 2017

Symposium Date: November 2, 2017

ECRS 2017 will bring together early career researchers (postdocs and graduate students) from a wide range of disciplines across BNL to exchange information and practice presenting their research work in a supportive scientific environment. This event will showcase the high value that early career researchers bring to BNL through their scientific accomplishments and provide them an opportunity to explore potential collaborations across the laboratory. Furthermore, it offers an excellent platform to demonstrate cutting edge BNL research activities to external audiences.
