Researcher Events

Researcher Conference

The annual Researcher Conference runs in March or April each year and gives researchers an opportunity to share details of their work with the rest of the Department. This provides a showcase for the breadth of excellent research taking place and an opportunity to develop possible links for new inter-disciplinary research.

Our last conference was a great success and ran in March 2019, hosted at the Department’s main site. Researchers from across the Department gave flash presentations of their research and there was a poster session over lunch. There were also a range of focus sessions on topics important to post-docs, from career development and commercialisation through to engaging with outreach activities.

Networking Evening

The Networking Evening provides an opportunity for researchers to get together on an informal basis and broaden their professional network. The evening typically has a career focus, and a range of discussions are set up on different career paths. This was the case for our previous iteration in September 2019, at the fantastic location of the Said Business School in Oxford. An evening of networking was followed by a drinks reception and dinner.

Other events

There are other events for researchers across the University, for example the Oxford Research Staff Society OXRSS organise a regular range of events for post-doctoral researchers from across the University, including socials and professional networking activities; and the University Careers Service put on training and other events for researchers.
