Researcher Careers Month

Researcher Careers Month consists of a variety of informative lunchtime sessions and is aimed primarily at the UL research community of Research Assistants, Post-Doctoral Researchers, Research Fellows and Senior Research Fellows. The sessions for Researcher Careers Month are broken into three key areas;

1) Researcher Tips; providing unique insights and advice into key areas for researchers such as publishing and funding from people involved in research.

2) Researcher Skills; these sessions provide valuable transferrable skills in areas such as networking and communication. 

3) Research Career Paths; discussing viable alternate career paths for researchers which will build on their experience to date.
