3. AEA Early Career Workshop Award: Closing Date: 29 May 2023

This award of $500 (AUD) provides up to three early career epidemiological researchers (masters or doctoral students, or those who have graduated with one of these degrees in the past five years) the opportunity to meet others at a similar stage in their training, and to discuss methodological, theoretical or other issues with experienced epidemiologists in a workshop style format. The conference workshop provides the awardees an opportunity to present a brief background outlining one or more methodological, theoretical or other problems they have encountered in their research. Each researcher will be matched with one or two epidemiologists with expertise in the area (the discussants) who will lead a discussion involving the presenting early career researcher and the audience.
