BME Early Career Researchers - How to stay in academia?
Wed 19 April 2017, 09:00 – 18:00 BST
Black Minority and Ethnic Early Career Researchers (ECRs) are grossly underrepresented in academia. ECRs find themselves conducting many postdoctoral positions, and end up leaving research as they are unable to make the transistion to a lectureship, due to the lack of support.
This conference aims to empower researchers with the skills to remain in academia, such as having a good mentor, guidance on applying and writing fellowships, tips on networking, and finally a good work/career life balance.
There will be a diverse range of academics sharing their experiences on the day.
Refreshments and lunch will be provided free on the day.
