Clinical Academic Careers
How to combine research and clinical practice
Venue: Thursday 25th April 2013 - 4:00-5:00 pm
Roberts Building, Torrington Place, room 421
(followed by a drinks reception in G40 Seminar Room, Ground Floor Medical Sciences)
This event will focus at giving an overview of academic career trajectories combining clinical training and research. The audience will hear about personal experiences and also about potential options that allow an integration of both areas. Each speaker will give their own account of clinical research careers being involved in the field of neuroscience, explain how they got to where they are, what might come next in their career including strategic alternatives and how this fits in with their clinical training/work.
All speakers are at different career stages and will provide a specific perspective useful for future career plans for undergraduate students to more senior grant holders.
This event is aimed at medical students, MD/PhDs, postdocs and postgraduate students from disciplines that are interested in the combination of research and practice as well as junior PIs.
There will also be an opportunity to network with the speakers after the session.

When & Where
UCL Neuroscience Careers Network (NCN)
The UCL Neuroscience Careers Network (NCN) seeks to promote the professional development of UCL Neuroscientists. The network provides opportunities for neuroscientists to meet their peers, to share ideas, experience and initiate collaborations. It also provides a platform for careers advice and the dissemination of information regarding jobs, training and funding opportunities. The NCN is organised by a committee made up of representatives from a variety of departments under the UCL Neuroscience Domain and includes both post-doctoral researchers and PIs.
