Now accepting expressions of interest to join the 2023 EMBL Australia Postgraduate Symposium Organising Committee.
The EMBL Australia Postgraduate Symposium (EAPS) is an annual event organised by volunteer PhD students from across the country, and supported by EMBL Australia.
The 9th annual EAPS was recently held in Melbourne at the Bio21 Institute. Read more about this and earlier symposiums via the tab above.
The organising committee is composed of volunteer PhD students from across the country, and across a variety of research disciplines.
Being part of the organising committee provides an opportunity for students to practice their leadership skills, stretch their networking muscles and get hands-on experience with event planning. As the symposium is fully student run, students have the opportunity to create the symposium they wish to see in the world.
“EAPS 2022 was an incredible experience where like-minded students of various disciplines came together to create an event for students all across Australia to showcase their outstanding research. Through my experience as a Sponsorship Officer, I have gained various skills, such as the ability to communicate with academic and commercial marketing representatives for sponsorship, and event-organisation skills. Most importantly, I also have achieved the confidence to speak at public events and step outside of my comfort zone. Overall, being part of the EAPS 2022 committee was a wonderful and rewarding experience and an experience like no other!”
