This annual meeting has grown to be a successful event, well supported by both students and recruiters.The meeting provides an opportunity for UK and European academic and non academic recruiters to interview potential candidates. These interviews are an important focus for the event. There are also opportunities for PhD students to present their work and to attend plenary sessions covering practical advice e.g. 'on getting published'. As well as two days of student presentations and poster sessions, participating institutions have the opportunity to arrange individual appointments with students. Students should note that attending the meetings does not guarantee them interviews: most institutions arrange these in advance.
The next RES Postgraduate Presentation Meeting & Job Market will take place on 9-10 January 2015 at University College London. If you are an academic or non-academic recruiter, or a PhD student looking ahead to the job market, please note the date in your diary now. Further details including how to register and submit a paper will be available from early September here on the RES website.
