Come and join us for wine, networking and activities aimed at giving you the skills required for conducting interdisciplinary research. This workshop is for early career researchers who are interested in collaborating with those in different fields.
We will be joined by Prof Robert Foley from the Leverhulme Centre for Human Evolutionary Studies (LCHES), a research centre devoted to interdisciplinary approaches (biological, archaeological, genetic, and behavioural) to human evolution. Prof Foley has extensive experience in carrying out interdisciplinary research will be discussing questions such as: What is interdisciplinary research? What are the advantages of interdisciplinary research? What are the difficulties of interdisciplinary research? In the second part of the workshop, you will get the opportunity to take part in activities aimed at preparing you for interdisciplinary research, led by leading Cambridge researchers.
This workshop is an excellent opportunity for postgraduate students and early career researchers with an interest in collaborating with those in other fields to learn more about the nature of interdisciplinary research, to meet like-minded students from other departments and to get some practical experience to prepare them for future interdisciplinary work. Wine and soft drinks will be provided. This event is free for all early career researchers (postgraduate students and postdoctoral researchers) at Cambridge University.
Registration is required as there is a limit of 30 attendees for this workshop. Our last workshop was over-subscribed, so register early to avoid disappointment at http://www.cambridgedockingstation.com/register
