Materials Research Institute



Centre of Advanced Materials for Integrated Energy Systems (CAM-IES) Early Career Workshop, 3 Sept, London


Date: 3 September 2019   Time: 09:00 - 17:00

Centre of Advanced Materials for Integrated Energy Systems Early Career Workshop on Energy Materials, 10 am to 5pm, 3rd Sep 2019

CAM-IES warmly invites you to this CAM-IES workshop, which has been designed by early career researchers studying materials for energy applications. If you think that your characterisation tool would be of interest to the broader energy materials community, please submit an abstract to promote it! The morning session will feature PhD students and postdocs giving talks on characterisation techniques that they have developed to study their materials system, and the afternoon session will feature career development talks from a range of speakers from the materials field.

This event is free, and all are welcome to attend. Please register for free using the Eventbrite link below:

Career development talks

The afternoon session is presented by researchers who talk about how they got their research positions, and how to promote or commercialise your research. If you are thinking of applying for an advanced fellowship or lectureship, or think that you could commercialise your research ideas, register to attend to hear the career journeys of researchers just like you.

--Dr Tom McDonald, UCL – "How I got my independent research fellowship"
--Dr Tracey Clarke, UCL – "How I got my lectureship"
--Dr Jess Wade, Imperial College London – "How to use social media to promote your energy research"
--Dr Lata Sahonta, University of Cambridge - "How I formed a start-up company using my research"


CAM-IES has networking funding available for early career collaborators in energy materials to engage with CAM-IES. Collaborators may visit labs, hold synergistic research meetings, and apply for funding for access to equipment from the Henry Royce Institute for key collaborative projects. More information on these opportunities through CAM-IES will be available on the day.

Location:  David Sizer Lecture Theatre, Bancroft Building, Mile End Campus, Queen Mary University of London, London, E1 4NS
