Forthcoming Workshops for Early Career Researchers

  • Whilst the network’s focus is assisting early career researchers with their career development, we do not define the term 'early career researcher' and welcome a broad range of participants at our events. If you are not sure/do not identify as an early career researcher, but find one of our events interesting, please do come along

23 November 2018 (11am to 2pm)
Demonstrating real world impact through your research
It’s not always easy for academics and researchers to see the impact of their work. Traditional markers of influence, such as citations, are not sufficient to tell the story of impact. This interactive session will be an opportunity for Early Career Researchers to discuss with a panel of experienced publishers how we can work together to challenge simplistic and outdated approaches to impact, shifting beyond metrics and celebrating impact of all shapes and sizes. Further details and registration

30 November 2018 (10am to 12pm)
Tricks of the Trade with Carey Jewitt: Developing your research identity

A challenge facing early career researchers is how to develop your research identity:
evolving your research identity whilst working as part of a team on a research project;
balancing being focused on specific research areas and methods with being flexible in your research career, etc. In this talk Carey Jewitt will discuss these and other issues in relation to her own career and experience and help participants think about their current challenges and future career plans. Further details and registration

Applying for your first grant

Winning a grant is not easy, and doing anything for the first time brings its own challenges. Winning grant and fellowship bids is, however, an essential part of academic life. Some people seem to be remarkably successful at winning grants. Are they simply supremely clever, or have they an enhanced insight into the process? This small group workshop will give you insight into the skills needed to make successful applications. Further details will be posted in early 2019.
