The main focus of the meeting is to provide knowledge and guidance for those pursuing research and are classified as an Early Career Researcher.

We aim to provide guidance on job applications, transferable skills, applying for fellowships, publishing, paper critiquing, managing people, public engagement, writing manuscripts, CV development and presenting

This workshop, whilst not being specifically focused to a reproductive theme, would demonstrate the benefits of being an early career member of the SRF.

All attendees are to be EC members of the SRF, working within the field of reproduction.

The skills obtained from attending the workshop shall provide enhanced understanding and ability within the research / academic sector and hopefully build confidence in those just initiating their career path.
