Symposium: Literature, Science and Medicine
The AHRC is funding a follow-on symposium for the LitSciMed programme (http://litscimed.org.uk/), which originally ran from 2009 to 2011. There are 20 places for delegates and the fund will pay for travel from within the UK and accommodation and meals. The event will be held at Lancaster University from 2pm on Wednesday 30th March 2016 until 5pm on Thursday 31st March. There will be talks and workshops on jobs (academic and other), publishing, impact and working with non-academic institutions, research grant bidding, and other things relevant to people at an early stage in their career. The event will be relevant to those who wish to work within or outside of academia.
Speakers so far include Professors Alice Jenkins, Tim Fulford, and Martin Willis.
