Date for the diary

SAGES are pleased to announce this years’ Graduate School Retreat will be focussed on employability after a PhD. A one-day training course is offered free to all members of the SAGES Graduate School and will be held at the Macdonald Hotel, Aviemore on 29-30th November, 2017.

Historically, early career scientists have received little support for career development strategies. Peter and Martin from ‘Barefoot Thinking’ have worked extensively with early and mid-career scientists in the UK and North America since 2009. Through their Challenge of Science Leadership training programme they have come to understand the career challenges facing postgraduates and postdoctoral research fellows. To help you, they have developed a unique 1-day career strategy workshop aimed at early career scientists. During the workshop you will learn strategic thinking tools, receive support from your peers and the trainers and have valuable time to think.

More details will be provided shortly.
