Early Career Seminar: Applying for Postdocs

23 March 2018

All Soul’s College, Oxford

Early career scholars are invited to a seminar on how to apply for postdoctoral fellowships and early career positions on the morning of 23 March 2018 in the Old Library of All Soul’s College Oxford, from 10:00am-1:00pm. The seminar will be presented by Dr Lydia Schumacher, Visiting Fellow at All Soul’s, who will speak from past experience as a British Academy Postdoctoral Fellow and Junior Research Fellow at Oriel College, Oxford; a Chancellor’s Fellow at Edinburgh University; a European Research Council Principal Investigator; and recipient of an Alexander von Humboldt Fellowship in Germany. At the seminar, guidelines will be shared for structuring a strong research proposal that is tailored to the requirements of different funding bodies. Advice will also be given on how to navigate the period just after the PhD and to make creative use of time ‘between positions’. There will be time for questions, and depending on the number of participants, a chance to gain feedback on a working research proposal.

To propose a paper, please submit an abstract of up to 200 words by 30 November 2017.

Prospective speakers be notified of the outcome by 1 January 2017.
