Recycle your research poster event 

On Thurs 6th Feb up to 40 researchers in Chemistry attended the 'Recycle your poster' lunch event in the Todd Hamied.

This gave the opportunity for both postdocs and Postgrads to share discussions on research initially focusing on the nine posters voluntarily presented by members of the department.
The lively and enthusiastic discussions were evident and general feedback was incredibly positive highlighting the importance and value placed on these intercative PDAC events.

Medical writing tips

If you are interested in med comms as a career, check out this medcomms# post on LinkedIn.

Medical writers need to write precisely….topics include ‘why using the word ‘because’ after a negative statement should be done with care,’ which could also be useful when writing academic papers.

Combining research, health and policy.  All happening at the EU’s Joint Research Centre…..

We’ve heard that the Centre is recruiting for a FG IV - Project Officer - Project Management healthcare quality activities on cancer.  The hiring manager said that it would suit a postdoc but wanted to make it clear that there will be a lot of project management, admin and bureaucracy. They don’t necessarily need a super professional pm2 (project manager) or another pm tool expert but someone that is well organised, can demonstrate that they have run and managed projects and is prepared to do that as a big chunk of his/her work.

The nationality eligibility is for EU nationals, associated country nationals, but not UK citizens.  The deadline to apply is : 23/03/2020.  For further info and to apply
