Thank you to all the applicants who applied for the 9th annual DYSS. Applications are now closed and the selected speakers will be announced soon.
We welcome applications from students who are near completion of their doctorate (within 6 months), and postdoctoral scholars, who have not yet accepted their first permanent positions. Eight scholars will be chosen by a committee of UW Chemical Engineering graduate students.
All-expenses-paid (from US and Canada) trip to the University of Washington in Seattle 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 department 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 9th year and is nationally recognized as a one-of-a-kind platform for young researchers to shine.
A journal article on the DYSS was published in Chemical Engineering Education.
Speakers from previous years include many rising stars in research.
