The EMCR Forum’s fifth national meeting, Science Pathways 2018: Diversify your Thinking, will be held in Brisbane at the Mercure Hotel on 23-24 April 2018. The event will bring together early- and mid-career researchers (EMCRs) and scientific leaders from academia, industry and government.
Diversify Your Thinking presents a highly interactive program with a strong professional development focus for EMCRs.
During the two day conference delegates will explore a range of topics including:
- how to achieve equity in STEM
- how to access funding from non-traditional sources
- the key considerations for interdisciplinary research.
Delegates will take part in a workshop using cognitive behavioural coaching techniques on “Maximising Research Productivity (and still having a life)” by ThinkWell.
This is Australia’s premier conference for career development of EMCRs from academia, industry and government and offers unique opportunities to network with leading scientific professionals from some of Australia’s top organisations in public and private enterprise.
Most importantly, this meeting aims to engage you—Australia’s early- and mid-career researchers, across all disciplines and from around the country—in active discussion. The Forum wants to learn more about the specific challenges you face and, with you, devise some possible solutions—both aspirational and practical.
