CCD Early Career Researcher Workshop

Australian Hearing Hub, Macquarie University

14 November 2017


This year's Early Career Researcher Workshop will be held the day before the CCD Annual Workshop. The workshop will be aimed at supporting our junior colleagues, including MRes, PhD and postgrad candidates, as well as postdocs and mid-career researchers. The morning session of the workshop will focus on critical research issues in Cognitive Science research. Our presenters will examine the assumptions and methodological issues of neuroimaging techniques used across the different fields of cognitive science. We will explore the promise and pitfalls of using fMRI and MEG/EEG in cognitive science research, including issues to look out for when reading and reviewing papers, and the current issues in statistical analysis and how we can all do better science in the future.

After lunch, we are honoured to have Emeritus Professor Michael Kopelman, from the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience, King's College London, UK, and a member of the CCD Scientific Committee who will give a talk about his unconventional career path.

The afternoon will be a panel session where we will have speakers at different stages of their career, from 90 days out to 5 years post PhD. Early career researchers will share their experiences of what can be expected in your first postdoc, what is it like to receive a postdoc on your own funding, what an overseas postdoc is like and "staying put". The final session will discussion how research and teaching are related and the benefits of gaining experience and developing your teaching skills.
