Research staff possess a diverse and wide range of essential and skills and experience, representing a huge talent pool that benefits UK and global research institutions, the economy, and society. The skills that research staff possess can unlock a limitless range of career paths. But it doesn’t always feel that way and success and options for researchers can feel narrowly defined.

The conference will be held on Monday, 29 January at the Core Technology Facility.

Registration closes at midday on Friday, 12 January.

The conference, which is free to attend with lunch and refreshments provided, is open to all research staff at The University of Manchester, University of Salford and Manchester Metropolitan University.
