Call for Members for Y-ILCA

ILCA is looking for members to compose the Young Investigators Steering Committee of ILCA (Y-ILCA).

The main goals of this Committee are to promote young investigators in ILCA, communicate the activities of ILCA to young investigators, build a young investigators active community and participate in the organization of activities for young investigators in ILCA educational activities, including the annual conference. The Y-ILCA will work with Prof Laura M Kulik, MD (Northwestern Memorial Hospital, Chicago, US), member of the ILCA Governing Board, and with the support of the ILCA office in order to promote young investigators in ILCA.

This call will close the 31 May 2021. The following criteria is required to apply:

  • Men and women below 40 years old (in case of maternity/paternity leave, the eligibility age is calculated by deducting 12 months per child from the applicant’s actual age)
  • Be an active ILCA member
  • Track record of involvement in clinical care or basic/translational/clinical research or educational activities on primary liver cancer
To apply, please send your CV (3 pages max.) and a motivation letter (1 page max.) to [email protected] before 31 May.
The Y-ILCA group will have the following role:
Meet virtually at least twice a year outside the ILCA conference and once during the ILCA conference.
Provide a bi-annual newsletter dedicated to young investigators.
Provide a journal club of the recent up-to-date publications on primary liver cancers for the ILCA newsletter.
Propose communication and networking activities dedicated to young investigators during the ILCA conference but also outside this one.
Help organize the Young Investigator session in the ILCA annual conference.
Create and manage a Young investigators page on the ILCA website.
Provide advice to the EC on any matter that may affect or involve young investigators.

In keeping with the ethos of ILCA, the aim will be to appoint a committee that is diverse in terms of geography and area of specialization. The ILCA Executive Committee will select the final candidates and the term for these members will be 3 years (2021 – 2024).
