Careers Conference for Researchers – 25 March. Please note that this event is now cancelled

The next Careers Conference for Researchers will now run in 2021: as soon as we have a date for this we will let you know. We encourage you to preserve the time you dedicated on the 25 March for your career. Here are some practical suggestions:

  • Read the speaker bios in the conference brochure and career profiles on research-careers.org, for inspiration around potential next steps; they have been in your shoes!
    • Consider ways to expand your insights into new professional areas, such as joining the team of Oxford researchers who select people to profile on research-careers.org and jointly edit new submissions.
  • Book a 1:1 appointment with a Careers Adviser to discuss these, how to develop your professional network or any other career-related matter. We are running appointments by phone and have added more slots on the 25 March. Please book via CareerConnect.
  • For upcoming workshops/seminars, please check the events calendar on CareerConnect.
  • Sign up for the free course: Career Management for Early Career Academic Researchers
