Starting a new research position can be unsettling. Whatever you are new to Queen's, new to the UK or new to being a postdoc or research staff, this session should help you better understand your environment, your role and the support available to you. Because postdoc positions are fixed-term positions, we'll also discuss career planning and help you set goals to progress your career, whatever this means to you.

This session is mainly an information session but also includes interactive elements.

This event will be facilitated by Dr Alice Dubois, Postdoctoral Development Centre Manager.
