The Academic Careers and Employability Programme (ACE) is aimed at equipping Warwick fellows with the skills needed to help them transition from the completion of their PhD to a postdoctoral/academic research career.
The ten month programme constitutes a series of seminars designed to provide guidance and resources concerning all aspects of academia, such as public engagement and outreach opportunities, media training and podcast production, public speaking, advanced teaching practices, and drafting funding proposals. While participating in this interdisciplinary curriculum Fellows begin to scope an independent research agenda, increase their research outputs, convene workshops to build networks and explore new collaborations. They also take part in presentations and practice interviews, providing them with invaluable preparation for academic applications. This provides a uniquely interdisciplinary environment for early career researchers, and challenges them to engage with unfamiliar disciplines and practices during the weekly meetings.
Sessions take place every Thursday in university term time from 12:30pm - 5pm in the IAS seminar room, Millburn House. Please click the links below for further information.
