The Meeting of Inorganic Chemists Recently Appointed
10-12 September 2018
A three-day meeting for inorganic chemists
10 - 12 September 2018
This biennial event brings together junior inorganic chemistry academics from across the UK in a 3 day conference to aid their development into successful, independent researchers through networking and exchange of experiences. Each participant delivers a talk on their background, current position and field of research. In addition, 2-3 leading established researchers are invited to reflect on their own career and share advice on how to become a successful academic.
If you are a recently appointed lecturer or research fellow in any area of inorganic chemistry, you are welcome at MICRA2018. We also welcome postdocs who are looking for their first academic appointment on the path to a career in inorganic chemistry.
Please note, this conference is being run concurrently with the shorter 2-day RAMS2018 meeting (Recent Appointees in Materials Science). Lectures will be in adjacent theatres and breaks/lunches and conference dinner will be joint with the RAMS delegates, to maximise networking and exchange between the groups. We are aware that sessions may be of interest across the conferences and, space constraints permitting, delegates will be able to join the most appropriate session for their interests. One of the scientific sessions will be a shared session, featuring plenary speakers of interest to both communities!
