Researcher networking event for early and mid-career researchers



Charles Perkins Centre (CPC), level 6, seminar room

Following the first successful event in May, the Research Portfolio’s early and mid-career research network is hosting a second event open to all early and mid-career researchers (postdoctoral level and above) at the University of Sydney.

The event, on Monday 16 October, will focus on mentoring in academia: what are the benefits and challenges, why it is so important and what mentoring support does the University offer?

An interdisciplinary panel of young academics (Dr Elizabeth New, Senior Lecturer at the School of Chemistry, Dr Jesse Jansen, Senior Research Fellow at the Sydney School of Public Health and Dr Stephen Whiteman, Lecturer from the Department of Art History) will discuss these topics based on their own experiences … and, of course, there will be wine and nibbles at the end for you to mingle and chat with colleagues.

Event program:

3.20pm – doors open
3.30-4.15pm – panel on mentoring
4.15-4.45pm – group discussion with facilitators

4.50-4.55pm – Gemma Henshall, from the Talent, Organisational Development and Diversity team in Human Resources, talking about the mentoring resources at the University
