Taking Control of Your Career as a Female Physicist

Taking Control of Your Career as a Female Physicist    Wednesday 11 November 2015, 10:00 – 16:30

The IOP will be holding a one-day careers event in London for undergraduate and PhD students, and those in the very early stages of their career in physics. The aim of the day is to have female speakers inspiring female physicists to consider a range of careers open to them, and to provide practical advice and information about the skills and experience they need to progress in their careers.
Dame Athene Donald, Professor of Experimental Physics at the University of Cambridge, has agreed to give the keynote talk and then host questions and discussion afterwards. Information on the day's agenda and speakers will be provided in the next couple of weeks.
They will also be running parallel sessions of speakers, and, alongside this, Sara Shinton (careers consultant and author of forthcoming IOP publication ‘Navigating the Funding Landscape’) and the IOP’s Careers & CPD Manager, Vishanti Fox, will be providing bespoke one-to-one careers sessions, helping students with their CVs, interview techniques, etc).
Travel grants will be available to delegates, as the IOP appreciate the difficulty that many students face in accessing events like these.
There will be plenty of opportunity to network throughout the day. Lunch will be provided and they will be hosting an informal drinks/networking reception.
