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

In light of the current COVID-19 situation in the UK, we are very sorry to announce that this event has been postponed.



We hope to still host this event towards the end of 2020 so please keep an eye on this page for updates.

There are still plenty of science and conservation resources at your fingertips, including 26 episodes of our award winning ZSL Wild Science podcast, and stories from the scientists in our Science Blogs, or follow us on Twitter @ZSLScience to hear about new research and general updates.

Thank you for your understanding, and please contact if you have any questions.


One-day workshop.

This one-day workshop is aimed principally at advanced PhD students and early post-docs. The event 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 paths of researchers who work both in and outside academia. The day will conclude with a short workshop on scientific writing, providing tips on how to choose among possible journals, and discussing the peer-review and publication process.
