ANZIAM ECR Workshop 2014
The ANZIAM Early Career Workshop is a great opportunity for early career researchers to meet together for networking, cameraderie, and a chance to learn from the experience of some great invited speakers. The meeting will be valuable for those just starting out their research careers as PhD students, through to researchers about five years post-PhD.
Acting on feedback from previous workshops we will focus on advice sessions rather than research talks. We plan to have five or six sessions on a range of topics including: getting grants, writing CVs, academic career paths inside and outside Aus/NZ, and balancing research with other commitments. The sessions will be in a variety of formats including panel discussions, hands-on active workshops and presentations.
Where / when / how much?
The biennial ANZIAM Early Career Workshop will take place at the Millenium Hotel in Rotorua on Friday February 7, 2014, immediately following the ANZIAM 2014 meeting at the same venue.
If you've attended ANZIAM 2014, that meeting finishes on Thursday Feb 6. You'll then be able to have the afternoon and evening exploring the sights and smells of Rotorua, the workshop will be 9am till 5pm Friday February 7, followed by an informal dinner that evening.
Best of all, thanks to generous support from our sponsors ANZIAM and AustMS, registration is free, and morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea, and a workshop dinner will be provided to all registered participants. For those who require it, free hostel accommodation for the Thursday and/or Friday nights is also available at the local YHA. We have only a strictly limited number of reserved spaces so you'll need to register quickly to avoid missing out.
All you need to do to register for the workshop is to tick the box on your ANZIAM registration form. We will be in touch with you mid-December to get your details, specific dietary requirements, and that sort of thing.
