3rd Royal Society of Chemistry Younger Members Symposium

YMS2014 is a one-day event planned by the Royal Society of Chemistry Younger Members Network.  Following the huge success of the first (Manchester 2010) and second YMS (Nottingham 2012), the third in the series will be held at the University of Birmingham on June 24th 2014.  The RSC and the University of Birmingham have recognised the importance of this career-development event by providing our keynote speakers for the day: Prof. Lesley Yellowlees (President of the Royal Society of Chemistry) and Jamie Gallagher (Public Engagement Officer at the University of Glasgow).

YMS 2014 aims to facilitate the development of young chemists by providing them with the opportunity to:

  • Present at a national conference
  • Interact with emerging talent from academia and industry
  • Network specifically with their peers

This year’s organising committee is made up of young volunteers from across the UK and employed in a variety of industrial, academic and educational roles.

There will be four parallel sessions held over a full day, covering all aspects of chemistry: Education & Outreach, Organic & Biochemistry, Physical & Analytical and Inorganic & Materials. Each session will have two invited speakers representing the cream of young talent from industry and academia. Invited speakers will showcase not only their excellent research, but also their career progression. There will also be several oral presentation opportunities and considerable poster space for each session.

We are confident that this symposium will build upon and surpass the achievements of the previous symposia, and bring the next-generation of talent from across the UK and internationally together for a day of science and networking. We invite early-career chemists from all disciplines and backgrounds to register and submit abstracts for oral and poster presentation. Registration for this event includes complimentary Affliate membership of the RSC (if required).
