When: Tuesday 7th and Wednesday 8th June, 2016.
Where: Peninsula Room, National Museum of Australia, Acton.

The annual NECTAR ANU Early Career Academic Retreat is a key opportunity for ANU Early Career Academics from across all Colleges of the University to come together to hear about, discuss and develop topics of relevance to early career academics, including final year PhD candidates continuing with academic careers.

Over the course of the two days, retreat attendees will be able to hear from and dialogue with academic and professional experts on a range of topics related to early career academics, to learn about a range of early career academic support, and to connect with and workshop ideas with fellow ANU Early Career Academics.

This year’s retreat includes a fantastic line-up of workshops and guest speakers on a range of topics including:

  • Mentoring and career navigation
  • Impact and engagement inside and outside academia
  • ECAs and the funding environment
  • Career pathways outside university
  • Teaching approaches, opportunities and training
  • A round-table discussion with ANU Vice-Chancellor Prof Brian Schmidt … and much more!

Retreat registration is free, and includes all workshops and catering for each day! We strongly encourage participants to join us both days.

Please RSVP on Eventbrite by Tuesday 31st May at the latest to assist us with preparations.

We look forward to seeing you there!
