North Carolina RC President's Award for Research Competition (PARC)

Deadline: September 3


To be eligible, you must be a postdoctoral fellow with no more than 5 years postdoctoral experience, and a member of the North Carolina SOT Regional Chapter. You may join when you submit your abstract ($10/year). The winner will receive a cash award and the opportunity to present their research in a 15-minute talk at the Annual NC SOT meeting. Runners-up will also receive a cash award. To apply:

1. Submit an extended abstract of your research. The data must be either unpublished, submitted, accepted, in press, or published in the current year or the past year. The extended abstract should reflect your own current, first-author data. (Please check with your co-authors before submitting your abstract.) Submit your abstract as a Microsoft Word document, single-spaced using 12 point Times New Roman font. The total length of the extended abstract must be no more than 2 pages, including any figure/table and references. Abstracts will be judged on methodology/approach, uniqueness/creativity, thoroughness of investigation, soundness of judgment used in interpreting results, and relevance.

2. Have your mentor send an accompanying email approving the submission.

3. Both the abstract and the mentor letter must be received by Scott Belcher by Tuesday, September 3, 2019. For questions, please contact any NC SOT officer.

You will receive notification of your abstract’s status no later than Tuesday, October 1, 2019. If NOT selected, you will automatically be entered into the Poster Competition unless you do not wish to present a poster at the NC SOT annual meeting.
