Black Minority and Ethnic Early Career Researchers (ECRs) are grossly underrepresented in academia. ECRs find themselves conducting many postdoctoral positions, and end up leaving research as they are unable to make the transition to a lectureship. This may be due to lack of skills, support and knowledge required to stay in academia.
This conference aims to empower researchers with the skills to remain in academia, such as having a good mentor, guidance on applying and writing fellowships, tips on networking, and finally a good work/career life balance.
There will be a diverse range of academics sharing their experiences on the day.
Refreshments and lunch will be provided.
