Follow your Star

The ASA Early Career Researchers chapter is pleased to announce our next ECR Mentoring Workshop, which will be held on 2nd-3rd May (arrival on the 1st) at the Pullman Bunker Bay Resort, in Margaret River, WA. This workshop is an opportunity to learn important (non-research) skills necessary to advance your career in academia or elsewhere, grow your network, and receive advice and guidance from our panel of mentors. And all of this in a slightly more relaxed setting, away from the academic environment.

The theme of this year’s workshop is “Follow your
“, and we will touch on topics of career planning both academic and industry based, leadership and skill building. Feedback from previous workshops has been very positive, and we are looking forward to another constructive and community-building meeting this year.

This workshop is intended for late-stage PhD students, postdocs, and very junior faculty. Registration is now open, and closes on 4th of April.
