Early Career Event 2014

Thank you to all those who attended the Early Career Event at the Challenger Society Conference! You made it a fantastic event! Over 70 early career researchers took part in the event that hosted presentations about finding postdocs and fellowships (by Anna Hickman from the University of Southampton), careers in science coordination (by Jen Riley from National Oceanography Centre) and careers outside academia (by Ruban Tharmarajah from IMAREST).

Varied and valuable advice flowed at breakneck speed with top tips "speed-pitch" style from scientists in different roles and with different career paths. Many thanks to Bee Berx (Marine Scotland), Sian Henley (University of Edinburgh), Maeve Lohan (Plymouth University) and Alex Poulton (National Oceanography Centre).
