BME early career researchers (ECR) β€“ how to stay in academia conference

After the first, very successful & inspirational well attended BME Early Career researcher (ECR) – How to stay in academia conference held April 19th 2017, we are very pleased to announce the second conference to be held April 3rd 2018 which also will be hosted by King’s College London at the Great Hall, Strand Campus, supported by Wellcome Trust and King’s Centre for Research Staff Development.

During the day, the morning session will have inspirational talks by BME ECR and Academics from various disciplines. The afternoon session will consist of workshops to encourage and nuture our talented BME researchers and signpost them to resources available, including the importance of accessing a good mentor and honing their networking skills. Applying for a fellowship is a key step in their career progression to build independence and a competitive edge in order to secure a lectureship and hence climb the academic ladder.

In the evening there will be networking on the terrace of Bush House. It promises to be another spectacular empowering conference!
