INSPIRE events at ICBM 2014

INSPIRE Midday Roundtable

The INSPIRE midday roundtable will bring together behavioural scientists from various career stages. This is an opportunity for early career researchers to learn from the experiences of senior researchers at various stages and disciplines. Senior researchers will be asked to reflect on how they achieved milestones in their career and to provide advice for up-and-coming researchers within behavioural medicine. The roundtable will also provide an environment for interactive discussions and is a great chance to get some of your common career questions answered.

[UPDATE] You can read Dr Ellinor Olander’s excellent summary of the midday roundtable here 

Poster mentoring

Are you presenting a poster at ICBM? Would you like to be matched with a mentor to discuss your research (or other issues) while at the congress? As an early career researcher you can indicate interest in being “visited” by a mentor during the poster sessions. It will be up to mentors/mentees to decide how long you’d like to chat, and the topics of conversation.

What past mentees have said about mentoring activities at ICBM… “It is a wonderful experience and I found it very beneficial” “It is a useful way of sharing your work with people more experienced in the field and hearing what they have to say about the type of work you’re involved in.”

Poster mentoring at ICBM 2014 is a great way to get connected with established researchers who will be attending the congress and builds on the successful mentoring activities INSPIRE and the Education and Training Committee have run in previous years.
