The MI is an interdisciplinary network based at Edinburgh Law School that investigates the ethical, legal, social and political issues at the interface between medicine, life sciences and the law. As part of its portfolio of activities, the MI regularly holds events geared towards younger scholars. To that end, the MI would like to hold a career development and support event, entitled ‘Developing a career in bioethics and health law’.
This event is targeted at postgraduate students (LLMs and PhDs) and early career contract researchers (ECCRs) across the UK, but with a particular focus on Scotland and the north of England, tapping into the Northern Bioethics Network connections. This will be a two-day virtual workshop, scheduled for Monday 19th and Tuesday 20th April 2021 and to be held via Zoom. It is also co-sponsored with the Empirical Legal Research Network (ELRN), as some of the discussion may explore how one can conduct empirical investigation of legal issues in medicine and the life sciences.
The event will consist of several invited (external and internal) speakers, including a mix of career level and career type (academic, policy, practice), who will speak to their career experiences. Four sessions are planned over the two days, focusing on PhD research proposals and thesis writing; writing and publishing research; grant funding (how to, resources); and career opportunities. Engagement activities will be encouraged for each session.
You will be able to register for each session or you can attend both.
