We pleased to announce this first meeting, which will be lead by Professor Michael J Jacobson, and intended to kick things off in a general way and to also provide information about what follow-up MBBs might focus on in more depth. Early and mid career researchers affiliated with CRLI and PhD students who have passed their thesis review examinations are cordially invited to attend. Bring some lunch if you want to, and some coffee/tea and refreshments will be provided!

On the agenda will be:

  • identifying research career challenges people are having or are worried about;
  • an overview of FASS and Research Office early and mid career researcher events;
  • lessons learned about research priorities, writing grants, strategic planning for conference, journal, book chapter, and book publications and more;
  • and discussion and suggestions for future MBB topics and possible panels.

We are tentatively planning on monthly MBB meetings during the regular academic year, depending on the interest. Michael is also available for individual research career consultations; please contact him directly if you are interested at michael.jacobson@sydney.edu.au
