Tools for a Classics Career

June 7th, 2019

The Women’s Classical Committee’s ECR Event “Tools for a Classics Career” includes a series of discussions and sessions aimed at giving ECRs a range of resources and information useful for those planning or embarking upon an academic career. The programme is as follows:


10:30-11: Registration

11-12:30: Employment rights and UCU – what could your Union be doing for you?

12:30-1pm: Alternative or small sources of funding – what are they, and how can you find them?

1-2pm: Lunch

2-3:30pm: Academic career planning and prioritising – a discussion featuring academics involved in hiring at a range of institutions, on how to make decisions to best prioritise for your desired career.

3:30-4:30pm: Surviving a Teaching Fellowship – discussion with recent teaching fellows who will share their tips and advice for those working in (often temporary) teaching-only positions.

4:30-5:30pm: Toolkit Planning – a session based on the preceding sessions, aimed at planning and discussing resources which could be put together as a permanent source of help and information for ECRs in Classics.
