The EASL Emerging Leader Award is a yearly award specifically dedicated to young fellows. Every year, the EASL Governing Board and Young Investigators Task Force select two YI Awardees based on their international liver research achievements to-date. The award is designed to recognise outstanding academic accomplishments and to help prize winners make the transition to becoming established leaders in their field.
To apply, you must be 40 years old or younger (with time allowed for parental leave in line with EU standards – 1.5 years per child for mothers and respective time taken off for fathers), hold a PhD and/or MD and be an active EASL member. Applicants in a full professor position will be considered established leaders and therefore won’t be accepted.
Your presence at the EASL Congress 2024 is mandatory to receive your EASL Emerging Leader Award.
Before applying please make sure that you have prepared the following:
- EASL membership number
- Detailed CV
- Recommendation letter
- Letter of motivation
- List of publications and invited presentations in international conferences
- Three of your most prominent publications with journal impact factor not less than six
- H-Index, and total number of citations in Scopus
How to apply:
Please access the EASL Memberzone and select “Emerging Leader Award – 2023” application option under “Grants and Awards”.
