Early career researcher manuscript Competition
The HUPO Early Career Researcher Initiative (HUPO ECR) is pleased to announce the seventh ECR Manuscript Competition sponsored by Expert Review of Proteomics (Taylor and Francis) at HUPO 2022 taking place December 4-8, 2022 in Cancun, Mexico. The manuscript competition is a unique opportunity for early career researchers to gain visibility in the proteomics community, as it serves as a platform to highlight the important contributions that postdoctoral fellows, young clinicians, and junior faculty members make to the proteomics field.
HUPO encourages early career proteomics researchers to participate in this competition with an already published or accepted manuscript during the 2021 and 2022 calendar years. Three finalists will be selected to present their publications in a dedicated plenary session at HUPO 2022, where an expert committee will evaluate the oral presentations to determine the “Proteomics Highlight of the Year” by an ECR.
Eligibility criteria: Competition is intended for postdoctoral fellows (Ph.D. degree awarded post January 2016), junior faculty members (appointment post January 2018 and PhD awarded post January 2010) and young clinicians (M.D. degree awarded post January 2015). Applicants must be HUPO members. Career interruptions and leaves, such as parental leaves, will be considered to extend the eligibility period.
Publication Criteria: The applicant must have significantly contributed to the publication as a first or last (or shared first/last) author. The publication must be an original research article. Review articles will not be considered for this competition. The publication must have been accepted or printed for publication at the time of submission for the competition but must not have been published before January 1, 2021. Manuscripts that were posted on bioRxiv and other preprint servers prior to submission will be considered.

A single publication file as a pdf (including the supplementary information, if applicable) and
2. A short statement (300 words maximum) in which the applicant describes the novelty and impact of the publication on the field of proteomics.
Deadline to apply: May 13, 2022

The three finalists will be selected and notified by June 22, 2022. The finalists are required to submit an abstract for HUPO 2022 and provide a short biosketch and headshot picture within five business days of receiving their notifications.
