Navigating the post-PhD experience

Abstract

Academia is not a job; it is a lifestyle, so some say. Come join the ACNS ECR committee as we facilitate a discussion on the challenges of the postdoctoral experience, with keen insights from our panel of distinguished researchers with unqualified success and experience in areas such as grant writing and getting a fellowship. Get invaluable advice on career planning and making a success of your postdoctoral time. We are very fortunate this year to be joined by Prof. Peter Enticott, Director of the Cognitive Neuroscience Unit at Deakin University and Prof. Erica Fletcher, Head of the Visual Neuroscience Laboratory at the University of Melbourne. We will also hear from the 2018 ACNS Young Investigator Award and Emerging Research Award winners, followed up by a Q&A panel discussion. So whether you are a current postdoc or a postgraduate student seeking to join the fray, come along and hear what our panelists have to offer and interact with your peers in a supportive and informative environment.
