05 Feb 2019

Date: Tuesday 5 February 2019

Time: 9.30am - 12.30pm

Location: Edinburgh

Course description:

A career in research is exciting, varied and gives you the opportunity to be at the cutting edge of discovery in your chosen field, but it is a highly competitive environment and researchers from all over the world aspire to reach the top of the profession. If you are aiming for a career in academic research it is crucial to publish regularly, be independent and attract your own funding. You can start to do this early in your research career: if you are awarded a postdoctoral fellowshop, not only will you stand out from the crowd, but you will demonstrate that you can propose innovative projects that attract research funding - this is a key requirement for a successful academic career.

In this workshop you will find out what steps you should take, time frames, what fellowshop involves, international options, how to apply, the different types of fellowshops available and how to use your connections to your advantage.

Target audience:

This workshop is suitable for PhD students (from second year onwards) and early researchers/postdocs. 

Course fees:

Student rate £24

NHS/Uni rate £48

Please note there is a cancellation date of Tuesday 22 January 2019, after which you will be shared if you cancel.
