Researcher networking event for early and mid-career researchers
Location: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.
3.20pm – doors open
3.30-4.15pm – panel on mentoring
4.15-4.45pm – group discussion with facilitators
4.45-4.50pm – Associate Professor Eric Knight, Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Research – Enterprise and Engagement), talking about industry mentoring
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
4.55-6pm – networking, drinks and nibbles.
