A joint ZSL/BES Early Career Event – 10th May 2019
The next BES event has been organised by Nathalie Pettorelli and her team at ZSL, and will provide a great opportunity for PhD students and postdocs out there to learn some of the essential, and varied skills needed for a career in conservation science.
This one day event, organised by the Zoological Society of London and supported by the British Ecological Society, is aimed principally at advanced PhD students and early post-docs. The event will review the key skills and knowledge that can enhance prospects for establishing a career in conservation science. The day will be structured around a series of talks and tasks facilitated by experts in their field, designed to promote active learning experiences and maximise networking opportunities for all. Topics will include: applying for an academic position; understanding funding options; working outside academia; and building an online profile/disseminating research outputs. Delegates will have an opportunity to hear about the career paths of researchers who work both in and outside academia. The day will conclude with a short workshop on scientific writing, providing tips on how to choose among possible journals and discussing the peer-review and publication process.
