Workshop: Making it as an Early Career Academic
Organised by Gavin Buckingham

When academics are appointed as a lecturer, they are thrown so far into the deep end from the (very different) world of postdoc or PhD student that it’s such a jarring change of pace and direction which totally derails people during these important years. It is becoming apparent to universities that ‘surviving your first year as a lecturer post’ is something that junior academics really do need support with. There is almost no formal provision for this support beyond unguided internal mentoring schemes. This half day workshop will cover getting your first lectureship to how to survive your first year as an academic on an open-ended (permanent) contract and will be a mixture of delivered content and facilitated discussion.

EPS Swansea Social Event: ECR Networking and Pub Quiz

Do you know your shrink Freud from your Pink Floyd?  Your Pavlovs from your pavlovas? We warmly welcome you to join us for an evening of networking and pub quiz fun. No prior teammates necessary, we will be on hand to help you meet new colleagues. One free drink will be provided, with further drinks and food available to order throughout the evening. The quiz will kick off at 8pm.

All are welcome to attend, but registration is necessary due to limited capacity. Places will be allocated on a first come first served basis, with a proportion reserved for ECRs.
