Two people talk in front of poster

The biennial NHLI Postdoc Day is an event specifically tailored to the needs of the department’s postdocs. It gives our postdocs an opportunity to explore their career options and focus on their career progression as well as to network with other NHLI postdocs. In the past the day has featured career talks by both new academics and previous postdocs who have chosen to move away from academia. Previous Postdoc Days have included talks by a recently appointed NHLI lecturer (Leo Carlin), a science journalist (Anjana Ahuja) and a Teach First representative (Ollie Longworth), among others.

The next NHLI Postdoc Day will be on 13 October 2021. This will be hosted via Teams and include a Q&A session with Head of Department, Professor Edwin Chilvers, talks from academics, research fellows and teaching fellows on their career journeys and presentations from individuals with experience of working in industry, the public sector and funding bodies. The programme for the day is currently being finalised so please look out for further information nearer the day.

Postdoc staff will be sent an invitation to attend the day. PhD students and Research Fellows are also most welcome to join and can request an invitation from Alex Dawes alexandra.dawes@imperial.ac.uk.
