Early Career Researcher Event

There will be a full-day early-career researcher (ECR) event, “Career Links workshop”, on 19th July at the School of Biological, Earth and Environmental Sciences. The event will run from 09:00 – 17:00 and will focus on networking. The event will be open to all meeting delegates but will be of particular interest to those at early career stages and at key early-career transition points. The primary goal is to provide an opportunity for ECR participants to get to know their peers and senior researchers in their field, and to learn more about career progression options and strategies. A secondary goal is to help senior researchers make connections with up-and-coming researchers in their field who may become future collaborators and/or members of their research group. The event is free (including lunch, although participants will have to pay for dinner). Participants must register for the event when registering for the conference. Places are limited and will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis at time of online registration. At registration, participants will be asked to provide three keywords to describe their research topic and methods.
