Welcome

13th Annual University of Michigan Early Career Scientists Symposium

ECOLOGY AND EVOLUTIONARY BIOLOGY OF PHENOTYPIC PLASTICITY

The Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at the University of Michigan is pleased to announce an exciting international symposium about the ecology and evolutionary biology of phenotypic plasticity. The symposium events will take place March 10 – 12, 2017 in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

We are pleased to announce the keynote speaker is Cameron Ghalambor, professor, Department of Biology, Colorado State University. Eight early career scientists who study topics in ecology and evolution related to phenotypic plasticity, will present their work and participate in panel discussions, along with Dr. Ghalambor. This symposium will highlight the work of up-and-coming scientists whose research foci span a breadth of subfields and levels of organization. Speakers will be announced soon.

REGISTRATION WILL OPEN SOON.

Early career scientists are considered senior graduate students (who stand to receive their Ph.D. within one year), postdoctoral researchers, and first- or second-year faculty.

Selected participants will be contacted in mid-January and will have all expenses covered (registration, travel and accommodation). An official announcement of the slate of speakers will be issued soon thereafter.
