Workshops

Planning & Managing your Research Career

Facilitator: Joanna Young B2B3C2C3

About this Workshop

If you are interested in continuing in research then it is never too early to start planning your career trajectory and thinking about what direction you want to go. Research is an exciting, competitive and challenging career choice that requires strategic planning, seeking out opportunities that are relevant, networking and expanding your skill set. As you progress, your daily activities will evolve and change and you will need to adapt accordingly.

This workshop will give an overview of academic careers, including case studies and examples from the instructor’s own experience. Participants will be asked to consider their career strategy going forward, regarding their research field, their accomplishments to date and their next steps. They will be introduced to fellowship opportunities, tips on how to network and make their research outputs visible to a wide audience. In addition, participants will be asked to evaluate their skill set using the ElementsTM skills evaluation and consider which skills they want to develop further.

Benefits
  • consider an overview of research careers and what is expected of early career researchers;
  • understand the next steps that you need to take to
    enhance your career prospects;
  • identify the skills you have and those that you would like to develop further

Inclusive Research Environments: A PGR Guide to Equality, Diversity & Inclusion

Facilitator: Professor Belinda Colston, Eleanor Glanville Centre C1

About this Workshop

Aimed at those starting postgraduate study, this workshop will introduce key concepts around equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI), and the importance of fully inclusive research environments both to society and to the future of the UK economy.

The workshop will specifically raise awareness (to both men and women) of gender (and other)-related issues and provide the training to mitigate the issues widely held responsible for imbalances in career pipelines (e.g. unconscious bias, confidence, assertiveness, work-life balance, stress management, etc.), and will develop a keen understanding of how a gender dimension can enhance excellence and impact in research (e.g. taking into account both equal participation in research teams, and integrating gender dimension in research and innovation content).

Although many research programmes will not have an explicit gender dimension, it is recognised that gender (and other) issues may influence the forms of networks and collaborations that grow throughout the students’ studies. The workshop will raise awareness of these biases and mitigation strategies will be explored.

About this Workshop

With REF and the competitive funding environment, impact forms an important part of the research landscape. However it can be a challenge to work out how to connect your research to changes, benefits and influence in the ‘real world’. This session is designed to help you understand what impact is, who may benefit from your research, how you can generate and capture impact and how you can meaningfully connect impact with own your research.
