The health and functioning of the planet is intrinsically linked to microbiology—from maintenance of human health to microbes as drivers of global biogeochemical cycles. This area has seen rapid growth due to recent developments in molecular methodologies that are enabling scientists to document the incredible diversity and previously unrecognised ecological functions.

This year, 70 outstanding early- and mid-career researchers (EMCRs) from diverse fields will come together to consider the contributions and transformations that this explosion of information may have in their areas of research.

This meeting will focus broadly on three themes: the living environment, the human microbiome and studying microbiomes. The Academy encourages applications from all early and mid-career researchers with an interest in the microbiome, irrespective of their field of research or professional appointment.

The Academy has hosted the Theo Murphy Australian Frontiers of Science symposium since 2003, bringing together the very best young Australian scientists to discuss emerging technologies, new opportunities and exciting cutting-edge advances in their fields.

The 2016 Theo Murphy Australian Frontiers of Science symposium is generously supported by the Theo Murphy (Australia) Fund courtesy of the Royal Society of London. The Academy is delighted to have this funding available to enable some of Australia’s brightest young scientists to engage in fresh thinking and to develop networks that will enrich their careers.

Eligibility

Early- and mid-career researchers working in Australia or neighbouring countries, who have received their PhD within the last 15 years (excluding any periods of career interruption) are eligible to apply.

Applications will be assessed by the organising committee who will select the successful delegates.

The Theo Murphy (Australia) Fund will provide financial support to all successful delegates to attend the event.

The Australian Academy of Science is committed to supporting inclusion and accessibility. There are additional funds available to facilitate your attendance if you have special requirements or require additional support.

Applications close 12 September 2016.
