Cambridge AWiSE has been awarded one of three Biochemical Society Gender Equality in Science Grants 2012. We are very grateful to the Biochemical Society as this allows us to offer three fully sponsored places to attend the WiSE UP: Strategies for Success in STEM career day on 22nd June.
The aim of the sponsorship is to open up attendance to those who may not otherwise be able to attend. This includes those whose employer is unable to fund the event, those employed in small businesses and start-ups, women on career breaks or returners. We invite applications from women looking to remain in, or return to, careers in biochemistry in its broadest sense.
To be considered, please email an application to firstname.lastname@example.org by the 28th May.
Your application should include:
• Description of circumstances prompting you to apply for a sponsored place (50 words max), including your scientific background
• How you hope to benefit from the careers day training and networking (250 words max)
• A declaration that you are happy to give feedback on the careers day and participate in a short interview
• Where you heard about the career day and this opportunity.
Selection of the successful candidates will be based on these.
People who apply for sponsored places and are not successful will be eligible for early bird registration rates as well as other applicable concession rates.
If you have any questions, please email Catherine (email@example.com)
