These bursaries are part of the IUPAC Young Observer program, which aims to introduce the work of IUPAC to a new generation of researchers. Formed in 1919, the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry represents chemists worldwide through work of the highest integrity and objectivity relating to the nomenclature, terminology, standards and data for all the chemistry sub-disciplines. Through its project system, where more than a thousand expert chemists are elected by peers and engaged in task groups, IUPAC contributes strongly to key issues across the breadth of the chemical sciences.
Establish international collaborations
Each bursary offers up to £2,000 towards the cost of travel, registration and accommodation.
Successful applicants, typically early career researchers, will attend meetings of the IUPAC Divisions and Standing Committees to learn more about what the Union does and how they might become involved in its activities.
The programme provides an excellent opportunity for early career scientists to establish international collaborations, gain knowledge of global research activities and participate in the work of IUPAC.
The deadline for applications is Thursday 29th November 2018.
To apply, you must be a Member of the Royal Society of Chemistry and resident in the UK or Ireland.
