Research in an Inclement Climate: How to Thrive and Survive as a Researcher in the 21st Century
26th September, Management School, 09.30-17.00
Despite its many attractions, the world of research can be a challenging place to be. From the current funding cuts to the demands of the 2013 REF, many of us are looking to re-evaluate how we do research – or indeed why we do it at all....
This one-day event is for all those who do research-related work within academia – whether as lecturing staff or contract researchers. Together, we’ll explore the opportunities and the challenges of work in this environment, looking at how better to support ourselves in our research careers both within and beyond the confines of the academy. So whether your goal is to progress within your current role or to find out more about how you could use your research background to open new doors, we invite you to come and explore the possibilities within a supportive and stimulating environment.
The day includes key note presentations on:
- What Makes for an Academic Career
- Open Access Publishing - Threat or Opportunity?
- There's only one Andy Russell or Using Outreach/Public Engagement as a Tool for Career Development and Improving Research Impact
- Ethical research in the current climate
