This one day event, organised by the Zoological Society of London and supported by the British Ecological Society’s Conservation SIG is aimed principally at advanced PhD students and early post-docs.

The day will be structured around a series of talks and tasks facilitated by experts in their field, designed to promote active learning experiences and maximise networking opportunities for all.

Topics will include:

  • applying for an academic position
  • understanding funding options
  • working outside academia
  • building an online profile/disseminating research outputs

Delegates will have an opportunity to hear about the career paths of researchers who work both in and outside academia. The day will conclude with a short workshop on scientific writing, providing tips on how to choose among possible journals and discussing the peer-review and publication process.
