Queen Mary PhD Careers Panel
On Thursday 30th April at 4pm, there will be a careers Q&A panel in the Lockkeeper’s Cottage at Queen Mary University of London for PhD students in the Arts and Humanities. The panel will consist of three researchers at different stages in their careers, offering advice and answering questions. Topics will include: publishing, the REF, picking your examiners, finding jobs, life in academia, casualisation, pensions, different routes into the job you want, and any other questions you might want to ask. The panelists are:
Dr Ros Murray (Film, Leverhulme Early Career Research Fellow. PhD 2011)
Dr Jenny Chamarette (Film, Senior Lecturer. PhD 2009)
Dr Jeremy Hicks (Russian, Reader and Chair of Department. PhD 2000)
All are welcome. There will be a wine reception afterwards.
Queen Mary postgraduate work-in-progress workshop
Beforehand from 1.30-3.30, a work-in-progress workshop for postgraduates will take place, where 5-6 people will have 20 minutes each to do something academic. You can present a mini-paper, discuss the first page of a proposed article, throw out an idea you’re struggling with, practice your presentation skills, practice a new teaching technique, whatever. Even if you would prefer not to present, come along to listen, take part and discuss in a nice friendly atmosphere.
All postgraduates are welcome and attendance is free. If you would like to take part in the workshop, please email o.kenny [at] qmul.ac.uk.
