Discover expert advice on how to develop your career

Now accessible online 

In October last year during our Careers Live event, there were three webinar sessions designed to give you expert advice on topics to help develop your career. As they proved extremely popular during the event with the live audience, we’ve put them online so you can watch them on-demand. It’s our plan throughout 2021 to bring you a programme of new webinars with skilled panelists, the first of which is how to master peer review on April 8. And then we’ll cover learning to code, lab sustainability and computational reproducibility, to name a few topics. Sign up for our newsletter to get valuable careers content and to register for these webinars. Alternatively, you can follow us on our social platforms – LinkedIn, @NatureCareers on Twitter and Facebook to see notifications on registration and on-demand links.

Two sessions on creating CVs for roles in both academia and industry

Both webinars are moderated by our editor, Jack Leeming. He is joined by Sarah Blackford, an academic careers adviser at BioScience Careers, who in this first session talks through techniques on setting up a CV, and targeting them to specific scientific roles.

The second session covers feedback and assessment on some example CVs.

Writing a first class paper

This hour-long masterclass is delivered by Christine Horejs, a Nature Reviews Materials editor. During this informative session she covers writing great titles and abstracts, structuring review articles and how to embark on a career in science publishing, giving you practical tips and techniques to succeed in communicating your research effectively.
