NATURE SCIENCE: Signal Transduction Society (STS) - 24th Meeting on Signal Transduction

When? 15.11.-17.11.2021

Where? Leonardo Hotel Weimar

This year’s meeting is jointly organized by the Signal Transduction Society (STS) and study groups of the German Societies for Immunology (DGfI), for Cell Biology (DGZ), for Hygiene and Microbiology (DGHM), and for Pharmacology (DGP), and the Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (GBM).

In collaboration with the hotel we have developed an elaborate hygiene concept that will allow us to join the meeting for interesting scientific talks and fruitful discussions.

It’s our pleasure to confirm the following topics and keynote speakers:
 
Differentiation, Stress, and Death
Harald Wajant, Würzburg
 
Protein-Protein Interaction
Volker Dötsch, Frankfurt/M.
 
Immune Cell Signaling
Jürgen Ruland, München
 
Infection and Inflammation
Marco Binder, Heidelberg
 
Tumor Cell Signaling
Gudula Schmidt, Freiburg

We are more than pleased to announce Professor Peter H. Krammer from Heidelberg as this year’s recipient of the STS Honorary Medal.
 
Together with our academic and industrial partners, we especially encourage young scientists to participate in the meeting. Along with moderate registration fees, which have been generally adapted to the shorter meeting duration, it is our good tradition to provide a number of attractive grants and prizes for the young academics.

ALL DISCIPLINES: Interdisciplinary Graduate Conference of the University of Trier

When? 03.12.2021 from 9am - 5pm

Where? Online

The third interdisciplinary graduate conference, organised by the DocColloq university group at the University of Trier, will take place under the title Entgrenzungen.
 
The conference is open to doctoral students from all disciplines, regardless of their institutional affiliation or the stage of their doctorate. This open approach is based on the desire to promote more interdisciplinary networking among doctoral researchers and to provide insights into other disciplines that can provide positive impulses for their own research.
 
Accordingly, the focus of the conference is on interdisciplinary exchange as well as the opportunity to gain initial experience in the environment of academic conferences and to develop one's own skills in science communication.
 
In addition to the approximately 15-minute presentations with subsequent discussion, we would like to offer the opportunity to present doctoral and research projects within the framework of media sessions (in the style of the classic poster session but expanded by other media formats, e.g. podcast, videos, etc.). All contributions can be submitted and presented or discussed in both German and English. The comprehensibility of one's own research project for people from outside the field is of great importance for the acceptance of contributions. For further details, please see the attached Call for Papers, which we would be very grateful if you would circulate at your institution.

If you are interested in participating, we would be pleased to receive your abstract of approx. 400 words by 30.09.2021 to doccolloq@uni-trier.de.

ALL DISCIPLINES: eDOCation - Young researchers ("eDOCs") Further education for companies

What is eDOCation all about?
eDOCation is the first online platform where young scientists ("eDOCs") offer continuing education for companies. I launched the initiative together with my former doctoral colleague Tobias Hornig (now a data scientist at Siemens). The platform contributes to the transfer of knowledge from universities to business practice and to improving the financial situation and future prospects of doctoral students, postdocs and junior professors. Market research conducted by us has shown that our eDOCs could earn a high three-digit € amount for a two-hour research workshop in companies. At the same time, eDOCation offers companies and their employees the opportunity to benefit from state-of-the-art science in the sense of lifelong learning and to gain access to the country's brightest minds as mentors in the "war for talent". The company is currently being promoted by the Stifterverband as one of the "30 best ideas for the education, science and innovation system of tomorrow" as part of the WIRKUNG HOCH 100 initiative. More information about eDOCation is available at www.edocation.org and in the attached presentation.

MEDICINE: DFG - Young academy for medical technology

Deadline: 30.10.2021

The Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation) is launching the tenth Young Investigators Academy in Medical Technology (NAMT-10) under the motto "Artificial Intelligence in Radiology". The aim of Young Investigators Academies is to prepare scientists at an early stage of their career to conduct research projects independently and to introduce them to the management of their first own DFG project.

The Young Investigators Academy is aimed at early-career researchers from computer science and medicine (especially radiology, nuclear medicine and pathology) who have recently completed their doctorate or will complete it by 2022 at the latest and who have not yet acquired DFG funding themselves. Interest in a career in the science system is a prerequisite. The goal is a DFG project in individual funding with limited financial scope.

VARIOUS DISCIPLINES: Society in Science - The Branco Weiss Fellowships

Deadline: 15.01.2022

From today on, the Branco Weiss Fellowship is open for applications until January 15, 2022. The fellowship offers an opportunity for postdocs in all areas of the natural and social sciences and engineering who have conceived an original and independent research idea that falls outside the scope of large-scale research projects. Fellows are encouraged to choose the best possible location for their research, anywhere in the world. They will receive support for up to five years. A Branco Weiss Fellowship comes to CHF 100,000 per year. It may be used to cover all legitimate costs of research (i.e. salary and/or equipment, travel expenses, consumables, personnel, etc.). The fellows decide for themselves how the financial resources will be allocated – for their own salary, for staff, for equipment or for a combination of these.
 
Eligible for the 2022 intake are researchers who:
 

  • Officially hold a PhD on January 15, 2022
  • Have obtained their PhD a maximum of five years prior to January 15, 2022 (exceptions from this rule can be made for parental leave – max. one year per child – and/or inability to work due to illness or accident; applicants must explain their reasons for applying for an extension and provide the relevant documents, then the number of weeks that the research work was interrupted will be accepted as an extension)
  • Do not hold/have not held a faculty-equivalent position (e.g. assistant professor or lecturer)
  • Pursue projects that depart from the mainstream of research in their discipline

 
It is possible to re-apply in future when a project was not chosen.
 
The first two years of a project are called the pioneer phase. At the end of the pioneer phase, a review and a site visit will be conducted. At this point, the project, its continued originality, and the productivity of the fellow will be evaluated. If the results of the evaluation and site visit are satisfactory, the fellow enters the exploitation phase for the remaining three years of the fellowship.

Branco Weiss Fellows are encouraged to seek faculty positions during their exploitation phase. Assuming an academic position will not result in termination of the fellowship.
