UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) is calling on postdoctoral researchers, research associates and other early career researchers to join its new Early Career Researcher Forum.
Recognising and supporting early career academics working to generate knowledge that accelerates social impact.
If you are an entrepreneurially minded post-doc, why not apply to be an Enterprise and Innovation Fellow, working with us to shape and sustain development of our Enterprise programme, supporting researchers to explore the creative and commercial potential of their work.
RisingWISE is an enterprise programme aimed at early career researchers at Oxford and Cambridge. It is a course entirely developed by and for women, including strong links with women experts in industry. If you are curious about enterprise, entrepreneurship and impact then this is the programme for you!
FutureLearn is hosting this free three-week course, created by staff at the Royal Observatory Greenwich and the Presenter Network. Learn how to improve your presentation skills (face to face and digitally) and add personality into your presentation style.
