Thank you and congratulations to the eight speakers who showcased their research during this year's DYSS series. Click below to view the speakers for the 2023 year!
We welcome applications from students who are near completion of their doctorate (must be graduating by June 2024), and postdoctoral scholars, who have not yet accepted their first permanent positions. Eight scholars will be chosen by a committee of UW Chemical Engineering and Molecular Engineering and Sciences graduate students.
We will arrange for you to fly to Seattle where you will have the opportunity to present a one-hour seminar on your research, and meet with UW professors and graduate students. The top seminar speaker chosen by the graduate students at UW will also receive a $500 cash prize. As of 2019, only speakers coming from other universities will be allowed to win this prize.
A graduate student panel in the Chemical Engineering and Molecular Engineering and Sciences departments at UW selects the speakers using criteria adapted from the National Science Foundation’s Review Criteria. Here are some tips:
The DYSS summer series is in its 13th year and is nationally recognized as a one-of-a-kind platform for young researchers to shine. The Chemical Engineering department at UW created DYSS to provide professional development to chemical engineers across the country and foster future leaders in chemical engineering and academia.
A journal article on the DYSS was published in Chemical Engineering Education.
Speakers from previous years include many rising stars in research.
