Combining Careers: Diverse pathways to academia

Note that those without access to Level 6 will be met at Pret a Manger.

NDCN’s Women in Clinical Neurosciences network is organising a series of pizza lunches where external speakers will share insights into their careers. These free sessions are open to all researchers in NDCN, Engineering, Experimental Psychology and Psychiatry, but booking is essential.
