Joliot-Curie Webinar 2019: The academic workplace culture

3 December 2019 12:30-13:30, United Kingdom


Introduction
Are you looking for an independent career in academic research?

Shape your future academic career in chemistry research.

The Joliot-Curie Conference is the annual must-attend event dedicated to supporting the aspirations of early career researchers, particularly those who are underrepresented in academia. 

This conference explores career topics that are relevant to everyone, and encourages open discussions on issues that can promote an inclusive culture and diversity in the workplace. 

With an exciting programme of workshops, one-to-one consultations, and keynote speeches from world-renowned experts, the Joliot-Curie Conference will enable you to: 
  • Find out more about academic research careers and the different ways you can access them 
  • Get information and support on issues affecting your career and progression in academic research 
  • Develop your communication skills and gain confidence when talking about and presenting your research 
  • Access support during the event through targeted group discussions and one-to-one sessions.

Who would benefit from attending?

Post-doctoral researchers in academia who aspire to establish an independent career in research. 

The 2016 Joliot-Curie Conference achieved a 100% Good – Excellent feedback rating from delegates. Here’s what they said:

I just wanted to say thank you to you and the organisers of the Joliot-Curie conference ages ago in 2016- it gave me the courage to apply for a postdoc at Oxford. I'm now sat here 2ish years later applying for a fellowship and I know I wouldn't be in this amazing situation were it not for you and the others in the JC team. I thought you might appreciate knowing the real positive impact it caused.

Supporting inclusion and diversity 

The Royal Society of Chemistry is proactive in ensuring all our activities to advance the chemical sciences are accessible and inclusive for a diverse community. 

We initiate new activities and projects that will improve the diversity of our community at all stages of the pipeline and we bring together evidence to inform how to make such improvements. 

Attendance

Grants for carers have been introduced following the Royal Society of Chemistry Breaking the barriers report where 78% of chemists working in UK academia felt that managing parenting and/or caring responsibilities has an impact on women’s retention and progression. This fund is not limited to women scientists and welcomes applications from anyone with caring responsibilities, for more information please refer to the ‘bursaries’ section on this page.
