Demystifying the REF: session for early career staff

What is the Research Excellence Framework? How is research excellence measured? What will the new REF cycle entail and to what extent should it guide our research? This session aims to answer these questions and more.

This event will start with a presentation on REF followed by a panel Q&A session. Panel members include Professor Derek Woollins (Vice-Principal Research and Innovation), Dr Helen Reddy (Director of Research and Innovation Services), Dr Louise Reid (Lecturer, School of Geography and Sustainable Development) and Dr Bhayva Rao (Careers Adviser with a focus on postdocs and postgrads).

The Early Career Women Network invites postdoctoral research staff, PhD students and anyone who defines themselves as an early career researcher to join us in Lecture Room 3, St Mary's College for this discussion. Tea, coffee and vegan cake will be provided.
