In light of ongoing discussions around multidisciplinary research areas, the Faculty of Business and Law is hosting a showcase event on Monday 11th May in room 409 of CCE1 between 2-4pm. This will be an opportunity to hear from the convenors of centres and research interest groups about their research areas with the aim of exploring the potential for greater cross-faculty working. There is no need to sign up, just come along on Monday if you are interested.
Just a reminder that the University Library is running Researcher Development Week all this week with various events for students and staff on researcher development. A calendar to see the events available and book a place can be found here
The ADSS Faculty Bidding Support Group will be holding a ‘drop-in’ session tomorrow afternoon for staff in the Lipman Cafe, 2-3.30pm.
Members of the Bidding Support Group will be on hand to chat to staff on anything research funding related. If you have a research idea, a draft application, an application nearing completion, a niggling question or anything research funding related come along for a chat. No booking required- just pop in and say hello!
What do research staff do next?
Although some knowledge of the first few years of researchers’ career paths after their doctoral degree has been gained through Vitae’s ‘What do researchers do?’ series, very little is known about subsequent career stages, particularly for those who were initially employed as researchers in higher education. This project will examine how and why early career researchers who have been employed in postdoctoral positions leave higher education and enter other occupations.
