The Early-career Members Network of the Metabolomics Society Travel Grant 2019: Award Scheme
The Early-career Members Network of the Metabolomics Society Travel Grant aims at providing support to Early-Career scientists* to attend and actively participate in national and international events related to the metabolomics field that will promote their professional development.
Eligible applicants must be:
A member of the Metabolomics Society; and
Within 5 years of obtaining their highest degree.
Up to 4 travel awards for (i) graduate students (master or PhD students) and (ii) post-doctoral researchers will cover travel and accommodation costs and conference fees up to $500. Applicants must be presenting their own metabolomics research and be willing to promote the Metabolomics Society at the event through the use of logos and acknowledgements. Applications will be reviewed by the Early-career Members Network Committee following a pre-established scoring system and the application deadline is February 28th 2019, 12 pm UTC. All entries must be received before the stated deadline in order to be considered. To apply please download the travel award application form. The application form will be accompanied by a short CV of the applicant (max. 2 pages), an abstract of the research project (max. 300 words), a letter of support from the supervisor and a letter of motivation (max. 1 page). By signing this form you agree to the terms and conditions. Send your application to firstname.lastname@example.org and include the following line in your email subject: "Application: EMN TRAVEL AWARD 2019". All documents should be submitted in one single pdf file.
Winners will be notified by e-mail by May 2019 and announced on the Metabolomics Society website and in the MetaboNews. Travel awards will be valid through 12 months from the date of announcement. Selected abstract and conference reports will be published in the MetaboNews and/or on the Metabolomics Society website.
Please visit the link to download the application form and for more information:
*All members of the Metabolomics Society that are graduate students (Masters or PhD) or within 5-years post PhD while being in a training position (e.g. post-doc) are considered Early-Career scientists. In certain cases where someone if beyond the 5-year post-PhD limit, exceptions can be made if time off was taken for personal reasons (e.g. family, career break).

Apply to Join the EMN Committee
Deadline: 15th August, 2017
We are inviting 6 early-career researchers to join the Metabolomics Society's Early-career Members Network (EMN) Committee. The mission of the EMN is to recognize the value and importance of our early-career members, to ensure that their views are heard and acted upon, and to ultimately improve their experience in metabolomics science and our community. Current programs and activities offered by the EMN include: workshops and the EMN Reception at the annual Metabolomics conference, the EMN Webinar Series, and the EMN Travel Bursary Program. We are also involved in the Metabolomics Forum and have a Facebook profile to stay connected with the membership. We are looking for creative thinkers to identify challenges faced by early-career researchers in metabolomics and to develop programs to overcome these challenges.
We welcome applications from students conducting higher degrees (Masters, PhDs) in a metabolomics discipline or from those within 5 years of their PhD who are actively engaged in metabolomics science. As an international society we encourage applications from all continents. Successful applicants must be members of the Metabolomics Society (or immediately become members upon joining the task group).
There is much exciting work to be done and much to achieve! Therefore we anticipate a contribution of up to two hours per week (on average). If the Early-career Members Network organises sessions at conferences or other events, time commitments will increase accordingly. Note also that the existing members of the EMN Committee span many time zones, so some conference calls may occur early or late in the day. No dedicated travel will be required for the EMN Committee discussions. The appointment to the EMN Committee is for one year initially, and may be extended up to two years. It is your responsibility to discuss this commitment with your supervisor(s) prior to applying.
Please send the following, in one document (.docx or .pdf), to the EMN committee (email@example.com).
One-page CV with relevant experience in developing and leading networking activities (e.g., student rep for other societies) plus your research experience in metabolomics (e.g., presentations, publications, etc.). If you are currently a member, please provide your membership number to us as well.
Up to 300 words on why you fit the role and up to an additional 300 words (one page in total) on what ideas you are passionate about developing as part of the Early-career Members Network. Applications will then be reviewed by members of the existing EMN committee members, and successful candidates will be notified by the end of September 2017 to start in October 2017.
