On behalf of the Australian Centre for Neutron Scattering (ACNS) and National Deuteration Facility (NDF) it is with great pleasure that we announce the ACNS/NDF ECR Clip Day 2022!
We welcome you to a two-day virtual conference at the end of summer to hear the latest research among early-career researchers (ECRs) using neutron scattering techniques and/or utilising deuterated molecules in their research
What is it?
The purpose of the Clip Day is to:
- provide a forum for Early Career Researchers (ECRs) to interact and connect with peers, their NDF and ACNS co-supervisors and other ACNS and NDF staff;
- allow ECRs to gain experience presenting their work to a scientific audience from a broad range of disciplines;
- learn about exciting new research happening at the NDF and ACNS
- facilitate valuable discussions and feedback on the research studies of the Honours/PhD students and post-doctoral researchers.
All students are encouraged to apply, even if you do not have results yet! Don’t miss this opportunity to develop your working relationships with your co-supervisors and get to know peers, friends, and future collaborators through their research presentations and through informal online interaction
Research areas and format
All Honours, PhD, and early-career researchers using ACNS or NDF facilities are welcomed and encouraged to participate. The last Clip Day in 2021 included talks from over 30 participants, and spanned many disciplines including medicine, mining, transportation, food processing and more.
The format will consist of either 10 or 15 minute presentations depending upon the completion status of your studies or project (don’t worry if your research is in its early stages or has been COVID-19 impacted!). We are also planning a few guest lectures on proposal writing and other useful topics!
