A final reminder that The Source Event careers fair takes place in London later this week – Friday 25 September. The Source Event, now in its 3rd successful year, is a dedicated science career fair that combines a dynamic exhibition with conference and workshop sessions. The event will showcase opportunities in the United Kingdom and the rest of Europe for careers in science, be it in industrial research, research organizations or academia.
Jobseekers will be able to meet with potential employers who are offering hundreds of vacancies. Plenary and workshop sessions will provide a unique opportunity to meet high-profile scientists and gain careers information and advice. The details of the programme are now available. The sessions are split into three streams, for graduates, for postdocs, and for non-traditional careers. Among the speakers are Gene Russo, editor of NatureJobs, who will talk about careers in science writing, and Sowmya Swaminathan, a Senior Editor at Nature Cell Biology, who will describe what editors look for in a paper and will provide advice on how to get your work published in a leading scientific journal.
