Spotlights on young researchers_

To highlight early-career researchers across the world, the FNR is running a social media and website campaign, and is actively looking to hear from PhD or Postdoc researchers with a connection to Luxembourg. This is an opportunity for early-career researchers to showcase their work, and inspire students who may be considering a career in research.

If you are an early career researcher (PhD / Postdoc) with a connection to Luxembourg, we ask you to take part in our campaign by sending us photos, videos, quotes and stories related to your research. The submissions will be used as the base for an article which will be shared on FNR’s social media channels (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn), as well as on the FNR website’s FNR Highlights section and newsletter FNR Info, our weekly e-newsletter.

What should you talk about?

Whatever your research – whether you are in a lab, in a library, or swimming with dolphins, in Luxembourg or abroad, we would love to hear about your experiences during your research – why did you become a researcher? What does your daily life as a researcher look like? Did something unusual happen during your project, do you have interesting photos or stories to share, do you have unexpected or promising results, does your research point to potential innovations in health care, economics or society at large, or can you tell us about interesting collaborations with partners outside academia?

What are the conditions?

The FNR is looking to hear from the following:

  • Luxembourgish researchers in Luxembourg or abroad
  • Non-Luxembourgish researchers in Luxembourg
  • You should either be studying for a PhD or Postdoc, or have completed your Postdoc in the past 12 months.
  • You must also send at least one good quality photo of yourself, and we are very keen to also get photos relating to your daily life as a researcher.
  • You must write in lay terms – scientific terms can also be used, but they must be accompanied by a lay explanation understandable for the general public.

The deadline to send stories is Friday, 3 March 2017, but you very welcome to send your story before. The stories collected will be published as FNR Highlights from March 2017 onward.

How do I send my story?
