Venue: University of Sheffield

Cost: 50 pounds

To book: https://cphc-chair-in-10-years-dec18.eventbrite.co.uk. The deadline for ticket sales is midday on Thursday 6 December, but spaces are limited to 20 participants so early booking is recommended.

This workshop looks at some of the issues for those aiming to develop a career in academia. It is designed for post-doctoral staff and staff in the early years of their careers. The outcome should be a clearer understanding of how promotional procedures operate, and the start of an action plan to achieve longer term career goals.
Ambition to succeed is great; aspiration, dedication and enthusiasm are great. Progress is undoubtedly helped by an agenda, plans, a strategy and objectives. The point of these workshops is to help colleagues move to practical issues that can assist in career management.

Before the Event
Participants must submit in advance:

  • a brief biography (PhD details, where employed, how long employed);
