Academic Careers: What’s Involved?
4th October, 9:30-11:00, Online
This session will provide an opportunity to gain a better understanding of the roles and responsibilities involved in an academic career (including research, teaching, and academic citizenship/administration).

Networking and Collaboration: How Can it Help your Research?
6th October, 11:00-12:30, Online
Traditionally researchers have worked either alone or in small research teams. Research councils and funding bodies, however, increasingly expect researchers to work in cognate subject disciplines to enable a cross-fertilisation of ideas and expertise. But how do you network effectively and set up successful collaborations? This session will look at how you network and make the most of the opportunities you have.
Book here – Deadline 4th October
Effective Project Management
12th October, 10:00-12:30, SLB/210 (Spring Lane Building)
You are responsible for managing your research/PhD project but may not know the best way to go about this. You may be about to begin a new project and want to know more about the fundamentals in the project life cycle and how to be successful from defining to completing. This session introduces researchers to the essentials of successfully managing a research project.
