Strengthening scientific writing, critical thinking, networking
This workshop will provide an opportunity for ECRs to build on their scientific writing skills and gain inspiration from mentors and like-minded researchers, forming a valuable component of their academic career development.
The early career researcher (ECR) grant & paper writing workshop designed for women in science, technology, engineering, mathematics and medicine (STEMM) is aimed at strengthening the scientific writing, critical thinking and communication skills of Australia's next generation of scientists and academics. Designed to help increase the number of female academics in STEMM-related departments, it will provide mentoring, transparent peer review and centralised writing training opportunities that young women in STEMM may not have at their home institutions.
Held at the University of Sydney from the 28th to the 30th of September with event sponsorship covering the cost of registration and catering for all participants.
