Shaping your career in research - Glasgow

09.30, Tuesday 06 June 2017

Queen Elizabeth Teaching and Learning Centre, Queen Elizabeth University Hospital, G51 4TF, Glasgow



Do you want to know more about careers in biomedical science and academic medicine? Would you like to develop your presentation skills, discuss the future of research and network with your peers?

This event will provide an opportunity for early career researchers to explore the career pathways available to them, develop new skills and hear about the future of research. It is open to clinical and non-clinical early career researchers in the biomedical and health research fields.


The event is chaired by Professor Dame Anna Dominiczak DBE MD FRCP FAHA FRSE FMedSci (Regius Professor of Medicine, Vice Principal and Head College of Medical, Veterinary and Life Sciences, University of Glasgow).


The programme includes:

  • Facilitated discussion on the future of research culture, in partnership with the Royal Society, which aims to explore what your ‘idealised’ research culture looks like, how it supports a vibrant and diverse workforce and how it supports excellence in research. This is an exciting opportunity to contribute to the science policy work done by the Royal Society and is one of a series of workshops taking place across the UK in 2017.
  • Talks on the research landscape in Scotland from Professor Laura Machesky FRSE FMedSci (CRUK Beatson Institute, University of Glasgow) and Mr Damian Mole (University of Edinburgh).
  • Workshops on 'Pitching Ideas'; to develop your presentations to funders, peers and senior colleagues; and 'Storytelling'; to bring your research to life by learning the core ingredients of a great story.
  • Tours of the state of the art facilities at Queen Elizabeth University Hospital, Glasgow.


A keynote session highlighting our new #MedSciLife project will discuss how a life outside science can shape your career, at different stages, featuring Dr Margaret Cunningham (University of Strathclyde) and Professor Iain McInnes FRCP FRSE FMedSci (University of Glasgow), with an overview of one research career from Professor Eve Johnstone CBE FRSE FMedSci (University of Edinburgh).
