What do I work on?

12 February 2015, 11:30 - 13:00

CRASSH Meeting Room, Alison Richard Building

This event is free to attend, but registration is essential. To book your place please click on the online booking link on this page.

In preparation for future ‘Talking to’ events held at the postdoc forum, and in response to requests after last term’s events, this 1.5 hour postdoc run workshop will provide a structured space in which to sit, think, write and then discuss succinctly exactly what it is you do, and why it matters. This skill is the basis for writing successful job applications, talking to the media, interacting with publishers – and generally communicating your research to others.

Tea and biscuits provided – but you’ll need to bring your own laptop…

This is part of the Postdoc Forum series 'Talking to..' In Easter term 2014, Dr Steve Joy ran a session on ‘Crafting your Research Narrative’ for the CRASSH postdoc forum.

It raised a wealth of intellectual and career related questions about the ways in which post-docs can shape and present our research for different audiences and media. Our 2014/15 programme builds on these questions and ideas, and focuses in more detail on communicating research and presenting yourself to specific groups, essential skills whatever your career plans after the postdoc.
