CLAHRC Early Career Researcher conference
Developing your career in applied health and care research – challenges and opportunities
4 October 2018, 9am to 5pm
Senate House, London
The three London NIHR CLAHRCs – Northwest London, North Thames and South London are pleased to invite you to their event for early career researchers from across the national CLAHRC community. It is being delivered with support from the NIHR Trainees Coordinating Centre (TCC).
The aim of this exciting one day conference is to encourage NIHR CLAHRC PhD students, fellows, early career researchers and research assistants from across the country to collaborate and learn about the challenges and opportunities involved in developing a career in applied health and care research. Whether you are just starting out in research (e.g. in the early stages of your MSc/PhD) or further down the line (e.g. near completion of your MSc/PhD or getting established in a research career) this conference will be relevant to you. Attendees will be able to connect and learn about further career development in health and social care research, in the context of the NIHR Academy launch in late October and the forthcoming Applied Research Collaborations (ARCs).
There will be a mix of plenary sessions, skills workshops, delegate presentations and careers clinics and key note speakers include Dr Louise Wood, Director of Science, Research & Evidence at the Department of Health and Social Care and Professor Dave Jones, NIHR Dean of Faculty Trainees.
