Abstract submission is OPEN for the second UKRRC Early Career Researcher Meeting
The University of Nottingham is hosting the UK Rice Researcher’s Consortium meeting for Early Career Researchers on the 16th and 17th September 2021.
This meeting is open to PhD students, post-docs and Fellows working in any area of rice research (or planning work in rice) and focussed on providing a forum for all postdocs and PhD students involved in rice research projects to come together and exchange ideas and experience on working with rice in the UK.
We hope this meeting will mark a welcome return to normality after recent hardship!
It will be led by the researchers themselves, providing them the opportunity to both network (find out about the range of rice research being performed across the country) but with a focus on the nuts-and-bolts of rice research in the lab and field.
- Prof. Andy Jones, University of Liverpool
- Dr Sigrid Heuer, Rothamsted Research
More will be added and a schedule released soon.
The Rank Prize Fund is kindly supporting this meeting and up to £1000 worth of prizes for Scientific Excellence will be awarded (http://www.rankprize.org)

The aim of this meeting is to generate and share knowledge on fundamental yet essential topics for those working directly on rice research, such as: growing and phenotyping; obtaining rice lines and transgenics; genomic resources and how to access them; the challenges (and opportunities) of working with overseas collaborators, plus other topics raised by the participants themselves. By coming together and sharing best practice and experience, we hope to instigate a network of early career researchers who can help each other to advance rice research in the UK, ensuring that we can contribute most effectively to the global research efforts on this vital crop.
