Establishing a career in conservation science: a ZSL early career event

This event is now sold out.


This one day event, aimed principally at advanced PhD students and early post-docs, will review the key skills and knowledge that can enhance prospects for establishing a career in conservation science.

The day will be structured around a series of talks and tasks facilitated by experts in their field, designed to promote active learning experiences and maximise networking opportunities for all.

Topics will include: applying for an academic position; understanding funding options; working outside academia; and building an online profile/disseminating research outputs. 

Delegates will have an opportunity to hear about the career routes of researchers who work both in and outside academia. 

The day will conclude with a workshop on scientific writing, providing tips on how to choose among possible journals and discussing the peer-review and publication process.
