University of Cambridge Careers Service Event: Making it in Academia
Thursday 11 January 2018, 9:00am – 5:00pm
Academia is the career that the Careers Service gets asked most about and it’s a more diverse job market than most people think.
The event is free and includes lunch and time to talk to the speakers 1:1. Join them on Thursday 11th Jan for their flagship event on academic careers to:
• Hear from senior academics on how to succeed in lectureship/PI interviews
• Understand if lectureships/PI jobs require the same achievements
• Find a job which matches talents and achievements
