ANZAMEMS is excited to announce it will be running a Professional Development Day for postgraduates and early career researchers from both Australia and New Zealand at the upcoming Congress of the Council of Humanities and Social Sciences (CHASS) in Melbourne, in late November 2022.
The event will be held both in person at The University of Melbourne, and online via Zoom on Wednesday 30 November 2022.
The ANZAMEMS Professional Development Day will assist postgraduate and ECR scholars in their development as researchers and provide opportunities to network with experts and other postgraduates working in similar fields. The program will offer a mix of career development and state of the field/s reflections. A detailed program and list of speakers will be announced shortly.
All attendees will be expected to abide by the ANZAMEMS Equity and Diversity policy (https://www.anzamems.org/?page_id=9826) and Covid-Safe procedures.
Registration for the ANZAMEMS Professional Development Day is required. Registration is FREE for all attendees.
