Advancing in Academia
For all University of Portsmouth Research and Academic Staff
*Recommended for experienced research staff*
This Vitae-inspired workshop is for postdoctoral researchers who are looking to build an academic career and are likely to apply for lecturer, senior lecturer or tenure-track positions in the future. This workshop gives participants the opportunity to gain a greater understanding of how to succeed in a competitive and complex research environment. Participants will be encouraged to think about the pros and cons of different research/academic career options and will have the opportunity to orientate themselves within a longer-term career plan. We will hear from recently hired lecturers and interview panel members about their experiences applying for and selecting candidates for permanent academic positions.
This workshop will enable you to:
Have a stronger sense of the academic job market and the factors that affect it.
Set clear and realistic goals for your research/academic career
