Conservation Research Institute

 

The Conservation Research Institute Early Career Researcher Programme 2022/23

These events are only available to staff, post-docs and students across the University of Cambridge and CCI Partners. 

The Early Career Researcher (ECR) Programme at the University of Cambridge Conservation Research Institute is designed to provide skill development and support to graduate students and postdoctoral researchers within an interdisciplinary and collaborative research environment. The programme will help to create new insight and understanding of different approaches and methodologies, and complement the training that is on offer within Departments and the University.  

The ECR programme is targeted at those whose research addresses conservation in the broadest sense which appeals to researchers across the University of Cambridge Conservation Research Institute's network across all six Schools. The programme is delivered through a variety of learning approaches and formats, emphasising the importance of interactive experience to promote active engagement for a deeper and enhanced cross-disciplinary understanding. By participating in these workshops, and the associated informal networking events, we provide participants opportunities to meet conservation-related researchers from other disciplines, creating the potential for closer collaboration in research.

The Michaelmas term programme will be in-person, in the David Attenborough Building (DAB).

Writing With Impact - Simon Hall

Main Seminar Room, David Attenborough Building

If you want to write in a way which impresses, influences, and inspires, this workshop can help. 

Whether reports, blogs, online articles, or even emails and social media posts, there are certain tricks of the trade which can ensure you write with real impact. We’ll explore them here, from how to hook a reader from your very first words, to finding and using your unique style of writing, plus the tricks of modern and inclusive writing.

Each workshop will be fast paced, and highly interactive. To ensure maximum benefit, participants will be asked to come with an idea for a report they may have to write, or presentation they could have to give, depending on the session. We will use those as the basis for our exercises.

Trainer

Simon Hall is a Course Leader in Compelling Communication Skills at the University of Cambridge, runs his own business communication agency, Creative Warehouse, and is a journalist, author, and business coach.
