Calling all early-career researchers (ECRs) in the fields of comparative animal physiology or biomechanics!

Don't miss out on the opportunity to enhance your science communication skills at the upcoming Journal of Experimental Biology (JEB) Science Communication Workshop.

Hosted by Dr. Kathryn Knight, News & Views Editor of JEB, alongside Professor Craig Franklin, Editor-in-Chief, and Professor Patricia Wright, Deputy Editor-in-Chief, this interactive workshop is set to take place on the 1st of July 2024 during the SEB Conference in Prague.

Sir Mark Walport once said, "Science isn’t finished until it is communicated," and this workshop embodies that principle. Designed to assist ECRs in crafting persuasive cover letters for journal submissions and constructing engaging science writing pieces, attendees will gain valuable insights into the art of effective communication in the scientific realm.

The workshop will feature presentations, writing activities, and discussion groups, providing participants with hands-on experience and personalized feedback on their writing. With a maximum of 24 spots available, applicants are encouraged to apply early to secure their place. Deadline for applications is on the 30th of April 2024.

Don't miss this chance to sharpen your communication skills and elevate your research impact.
Apply now and be a part of this transformative learning experience.

Places are limited to a maximum of 24 attendees. Applicants should be early-career researchers (graduate student, postdoctoral researcher or junior faculty staff within 5 years of their first position) working in a field covered by Journal of Experimental Biology (comparative animal physiology or biomechanics; see    https://journals.biologists.com/jeb/pages/aims for further information). Applicants will be selected with the principles of equity, diversity and inclusion in mind.
