For women researchers aiming for an academic career in science
Are you aiming for an academic career in science? This 2-day course will help you think in detail about what you want from an academic career, and about how to start to take control and design your own pathway. Participants will:
- Construct your own definition of career success within academia
- Working together in groups, undertake a project in between the two workshop days
- Present the findings and outcomes of the group project on day two, and receive feedback
- Plan ongoing action
Pathways is open to research staff and DPhil students in their third year and above who self-identify as female.
If you self-identify as male and would be interested in attending a personal development programme, please see details of the Navigator programme: https://www.mpls.ox.ac.uk/training/course-programme-for-graduate-students/navigator-development-programme-for-men
