Early Career Scientists Symposium

Ecology and evolutionary biology of phenotypic plasticity
Saturday, March 11, 2017
8:15 AM-6:00 PM
Forum Hall, 4th floor Palmer Commons Map
The Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at the University of Michigan is pleased to announce an exciting international symposium about the ecology and evolutionary biology of phenotypic plasticity. Phenotypic plasticity broadly defined includes any phenotypic response of an organism to a change in its environment, and, as such, touches nearly every discipline in biology.

We are pleased to announce the keynote speaker is Cameron Ghalambor, professor, Department of Biology, Colorado State University. Eight early career scientists who study topics in ecology and evolution related to phenotypic plasticity, will present their work and participate in panel discussions, along with Dr. Ghalambor. This symposium will highlight the work of up-and-coming scientists whose research foci span a breadth of subfields and levels of organization. You can read more about all the speakers on the ECSS website linked below.

Early career scientists are considered senior graduate students (who stand to receive their Ph.D. within one year), postdoctoral researchers, and first- or second-year faculty.
