PhD Student Travel Award for Cross-Modal Sensory Research
The European Sensory Network (ESN) will award one PhD student with the opportunity to attend the next meeting of the ESN, to be held in Aarhus, Denmark, 25th -26th April, 2012.
The Award will provide travel expenses to and from the meeting, two nights accommodation, and an evening meal with colleagues. The Award provides an excellent networking opportunity for students with leading scientists in their field. The recipient will be invited to provide a 30 min presentation of their PhD work to ESN members and industry partners, and to participate in a 1-day research theme workshop that will focus on cross-modal sensory interactions.
The 2012 award is open to PhD students whose research addresses Cross-Modal Sensory Interactions, which may focus on biological or learning processes, or food, beverage, or non-food consumer products. Interactions may be within and between sensory modalities of taste, smell, texture, sound, and vision.
The Award will be based upon an abstract of your work not exceeding 300 words, which should be accompanied by a letter of recommendation by your primary PhD supervisor. These documents should be sent by email no later that 31st January, 2012, to:
Dr Conor Delahunty,
CSIRO Food and Nutritional Sciences,
[Tel: +61 2 9490 8362].
The ESN Research Committee will select the recipient. For information about ESN, see http://www.esn-network.com
