Our fifth Career Spotlight turns to Science Publishing next week (non-scientists, by all means come too: two of our speakers have Arts degrees!).
Our speakers are all leaders in their field, have great experience of launching new titles, managing staff and will have insights into the future of publishing. Please come along to find out more about this career route, one that many of you are interested in and which has important influences on all academics.
Our speakers include:
Ruth Francis – Head of Communications at BioMed Central (previous includes Head of Press Nature Publishing Group and Press Officer King’s College London and Cancer Research UK)
Luke Fleet – Associate Editor at Nature Publishing Group (previous includes Assistant Editor Nature Communications and a PhD Physics, Quantum Nanoelectronics)
Michael Osuch – Publishing Director for Neuroscience and Psychology journals at Elsevier (previous posts were at Nature, Informa and Wiley Publishing)
Francesca Lake – Managing Editor, Future Science Group
Are you a KCL PhD or Post-doc? Get organised about your career next year and come along to the Career Spotlight events.
These are evening talks from people who are using their PhDs to work in a range of different industries. Often they are KCL alumni coming to talk about their experiences.
In 2015, we kick off the series with consultants from Navigant talking about Life Science Consulting. For the full list and to keep up to date with employers as they come on board, check here. No need to sign up – just turn up on the night.
We’ll be creating a special Arts & Humanities event in early April – keep your eyes open on this blog for announcements!
