NIHR Post-Doctoral Career Development Event – Monday 6th November 2023

Successfully navigating your post-doctoral research career

The National Institute for Health and Care Research (NIHR) is planning a career development event for post-doctoral researchers titled: “Successfully navigating your post-doctoral research career”.

The event will be held on Monday 6th November 2023 at The Studio, Birmingham.

Planned by members at this career stage, the day long hybrid conference will support post-doctoral researchers from all fields of health and social care research to successfully navigate this pivotal, and sometimes challenging stage of their career.

The event will cover:

  • The skills and knowledge to craft a successful and robust grant or fellowship application.
  • A career planning and leadership panel which will enable delegates to hear about navigating the peaks and troughs of a successful research career.
  • How to get the most from being both a mentee and a mentor.
  • The chance to meet and network with others at a similar career stage.

The event will be open to any researchers at a postdoctoral career stage or in the final year of their PhD interested in pursuing their career with NIHR. If the event is oversubscribed in-person places will be selected to achieve a balance of attendees.
