1)          Early Career Researchers
This training is specifically for early career researchers therefore it is open to anyone who is a PhD student or a recent post-doc (+2 years maximum from PhD).

2)          Conservation or Biomedical related disciplines

It is important that you work within either the UCCRI (Conservation) or Cambridge Infectious Diseases IRC, Cambridge Immunology, Cambridge Metabolic or Cambridge Public Health SRNs.  If in doubt, please contact the IRC co-ordinator (Alison Harvey, for Conservation; Allyson Walsh for Infectious Diseases) to check.

3)          Interdisciplinary focus in your research
You will need to show that your research involves liaising with other disciplines since our IRCs are very focused on interdisciplinarity, such as highlighting aspects of your research that might include both social and physical sciences. For example, you may be researching a particular species or disease but need to take into account the political or cultural aspects involved.

4)          Attendance and Commitment
You will need to be able to confirm in your application that you can attend the full day training as well as be committed to the five follow up sessions provided. 

Please note that if you are offered a place and you can no longer attend you must give us at least 3 days prior notice, so your place can be offered to someone else (we will be offering standby places). If you cancel any later/or just don’t turn up you will be charged a fee of £100 (unless you are unwell or there are exceptional circumstances)

This training session is supported in part through the Isaac Newton Trust as part of the UCCRI Early Career Researcher Programme and Biomedical Interdisciplinary Research Leadership Programme

We are one of CCI's ten conservation partners based in Cambridge, UK.
