Junior meets Senior (JmS) Scholar Panel 2021 EPSA 2021 Annual Meeting

Anita Gohdes (@ARGohdes) and Catherine De Vries (@CatherineDVries) invite PhD students and PostDocs to participate in the Junior meets Scholar (JmS) Panel at the upcoming 2021 EPSA Online Annual Meeting.

The JmS panel will have 5-6 junior participants who will be selected by Anita and Catherine. The junior panellists will be paired with a senior scholar who will comment on the paper submitted by the junior panellist. Each junior/ senior scholar will be paired in an individual session and allocated 30 minutes. The junior scholar commits to submitting the paper 2 weeks in advance and senior scholar commits to reading the paper beforehand. This is not paper presentation – simply constructive comments from the senior scholar and responses from the junior scholar.

To be considered for the panel, junior scholars are invited to 1) submit a paper proposal of no more than 1 page in length; and 2) suggest two or three senior scholars with whom they would like to be matched. Submissions should be sent to diversity@epsanet.org. The subject line should read “JmS”. These should NOT be proposals that have already been submitted to the EPSA conference. Deadline for submission is February 15th, 2021.

Anita and Catherine will announce the selection on February 25, 2021.
