Last week saw the Dalton Younger Members Event (DYME) held at the University of Bath. This is a free biennial event designed to support PhD students and post-doctoral researchers within the Inorganic community, providing presentation and networking opportunities for early career researchers in a relaxed and friendly setting.
The event was organised by Dr Jennifer Garden (University of Edinburgh) and Emma Sackville (University of Bath), the post-doctoral and PhD representatives of the RSC Dalton Division, and featured plenary talks by Robin Bedford, Rebecca Melen, and Geoff Spikes as well as a packed schedule of oral and poster presentations by PhD and post-doctoral researchers.
Dalton Transactions was on hand to offer prizes for the best oral and poster presentations. The winners were:
|Best Oral Presentations:
Conrad Goodwin (University of Manchester)
Alice Johnson (University of Zaragoza)
Best Poster Presentations:
Jamie Hunter (University of Edinburgh)
Kristine Laws (King’s College London)
Gemma Trott (University of Oxford)
|L-R: Jennifer Garden, Alice Johnson, Kristine Laws, Jamie Hunter, Conrad Goodwin, Gemma Trott, Emma Sackville|
DYME alternates years with the Meeting of Inorganic Chemists Recently Appointed (MICRA) which will be hosted by Rebecca Melen next year at Cardiff University.
