‘Insight into Academia’ – events for Trinity Term

Blogged by Jane Chanaa on April 20, 2017.

“Insight Into Academia” is a series of informal seminars, exploring opportunities for an academic career within and beyond the UK, important decisions along the way, and what it takes to thrive as an academic.

Week 2: Tuesday 2 May

  • Insight into Academia: Academic CVs with Impact

This seminar will focus on how to create an effective CV for early and mid-career academic posts. We will consider how to organise and present your qualifications and experience, in ways that meet current criteria for recruitment and the foreseeable priorities of academic departments.

Week 5: Tuesday 23 May

  • Insight into Academia: Coping with a Sense of Academic Failure

This informal seminar aims to open up discussion on feelings that can trouble many early career academics. The aim is to understand where these feelings might come from, how they can affect us, what we can learn from them, and how to move on in healthy ways that do not limit us. We will introduce some new resources developed in collaboration with postdocs and professionals from the University. All questions and contributions will be kept confidential.
