This series of career development workshops provides early stage researchers (PhD students and postdoctoral fellows) with practical guidance regarding the professional experience required when applying for positions in academic institutions. Delegates will be offered opportunities to meet and discuss their work with a panel of academics and other professionals who will talk about their experiences of, for example, managing research projects; presenting research; publishing research and assessing materials for publication; applying for funding and assessing funding applications; conducting viva voce examinations; organising events; interviewing candidates for academic positions; and working post-PhD within, in collaboration with, and outside academia. Each workshop will begin with presentations by a panel of guest speakers, after which there will be time for questions and discussion. Each of the presenters will give short talks about their work in the area of their presentation, focusing particularly on the practicalities involved. The second half of each workshop will focus on delegates' own work, a sample of which delegates will be asked to bring with them. Guest speakers will work with delegates to address delegates’ concerns and the specificities of each person’s situation.
