Past Event: 11th March 2021



THURSDAY 11th MARCH 2021 15:00 GMT


The BMSS EFASIG will be hosting the final event in its current series of International Seminars on Thursday 11th March 2021 and the SIG co-ordinators warmly invite you to join us.


This event is being organised to hear from a wide range of people in our community and provide support and advice for those who are thinking about the next steps in their career. We will hear from ECRs through to retired researchers to who will be sharing the cool Mass Spectrometry based science that they now do and giving tips and advice they have learnt along the way. We will also be announcing the winner of the Leon Peters Award for the best ERC presentation of the series. The outline agenda for the meeting is as follows:



15:00    1 hour of short presentations from a wide variety of people from different backgrounds. These will focus on the Mass Spectrometry work that these individuals do, but also the journey they took to get there, (These people will then make up our expert panel).

16:00   Announcement of Leon Peters ECR Award for best ECR presentation 

16:05   Focussed panel discussion on presentations

16:20   Breakout groups where each member of that panel will lead a discussion in their own breakout room and share tips for career progression and lead some simple networking activities.
