Date: Monday 20th September - Friday 1st October 2021
For: Primarily Postgraduate and Postdoctoral Early Career Researchers, but all interested individuals are warmly invited
In previous years York has held an annual researcher conference. This year, the York Researcher Festival will take place over a two week period of time to align with National Postdoc Appreciation week (20th - 24th September) and the National Postdoc Conference (24th September). The festival will provide a dedicated space and time in which we celebrate our early career researchers (PG researchers and postdocs) and facilitate opportunities to come together across disciplines to share experiences, learn, network and develop new skills. We know this is a busy time and it’s not anticipated that researchers will take part in everything, rather that you carve out some ‘me time’ to focus on what’s important and to take stock of your skills and career aspirations. We sincerely hope that PIs and managers will support this.
Participation in Festival sessions will ‘count’ as part of the 10 days professional and career development but it is not expected that participants take the full two weeks away from their research, rather that they dip in and out of what is useful.
Registration is now open for all Festival events and sessions:
