Location: IAS Seminar Room C0.02

With John Burden, IAS

This session will look at developing your research through an externally funded research fellowship and why this can be an important route to a permanent academic position. The session will look at what a fellowship is, who is funding them, what the funders are looking for in an applicant and what makes a good application.

Athena Professional Workshop: You & Your Ideal Job

20th October 2022 | 13:00 - 15:00

Working with expectation and aspiration, we will help fellows to think about what they want to achieve and give them some practical insight into how they can help themselves to get there. In particular, we will invite fellows to consider how to make the most of the programme and their on-going work to generate evidence of capability in order to make future job applications.

3rd November 2022 | 13:00 - 15:00

Location: IAS Seminar Room C0.02

With Nicola Jones, Athena Professional

Collaboration is a key part of academic life in the 21st C. There is also a social and moral imperative for academia to provide an inclusive environment in which people from a range of backgrounds with a variety of life experience can participate. Learning to work with difference in order to attain a shared purpose is essential and can be hugely creative, fruitful and fulfilling.

Leverhulme Early Career Fellowships: Hear from Awardees at Warwick

17th November 2022 | 13:00 - 15:30

Location: Online via Teams

With Dr John Burden, Dr Diana Palacio Lozana, Dr Amanda Wilson and Dr Xiaona Wang

This session will be split into two parts. The first half of the session will be delivered by Dr John Burden who will provide you with key information about what a Leverhulme Fellowship is and how to apply for them. In the second half, you will hear from Dr Diana Palacio Lozana and Dr Amanda Wilson who are both Leverhulme awardees. They will give a quick introduction to their research and experience of having a Leverhulme Fellowship. This will be a panel-style session where you will be about to ask Diana and Amanda questions about the fellowship process.

This session should provide you with a deeper understanding of the Leverhulme Early Career Fellowship scheme from award holders. The majority of the session will be shaped around the dilemmas and questions you put forward, but indicative topics that may be covered include advice on the planning and writing of the fellowship application and how to maximise opportunities and consolidate research during a fellowship. 

InReach10x Seminar

1st December 2022 | 12:00 - 14:00

Location: L5 Lecture theatre Science Concourse

Talk by Pier-Emmanuel Tremblay

Cosmo-chronology in our neighbourhood of stars and planets

The volume of space within 300 light years from the Sun, a small portion of our own galaxy the Milky Way, contains the brightest specimens of almost all types of stars and planets, but surprisingly it remains poorly explored. The main reason is that most stellar objects in a fixed space volume are small and very faint, most of them being long-lived red stars about 10% of the mass of the Sun, dead stars named "white dwarfs" and rocky Earth-like exoplanets. The spacecraft Gaia from the European Space Agency has provided, for the first time in 2018, a near complete census of stars and white dwarfs within 300 light years, but a full understanding of the local stellar population is still a major challenge. My group at the University of Warwick is leading an ambitious project to improve our knowledge of stellar and planetary evolution using the local space volume. Our novel approach is based on follow-up multi-object spectroscopic observations and state-of-the-art stellar modelling from three-dimensional fluid hydrodynamics. The goal is to unlock the enormous potential of using local stars as cosmic clocks to trace the local stellar and planet formation history for our galaxy. I will discuss the recently discovered signature of old rocky planets that were formed when the Milky Way was still a very young galaxy (10% of the current age of the Universe), in a metal-poor environment that was quite different to when our solar system was formed.

Research Snapshot and End of Term Social

8th December 2022 | 12:00 - 17:00

Location: IAS Seminar Room C0.02 and IAS Common Room C0.06

With the IAS Team

This event will give our Fellows the opportunity to present a snapshot of their research to the IAS community. Each fellow will have 2 minutes and one slide to communicate their work in an ‘elevator pitch’ style presentation. Each session will be followed with questions to encourage innovative conversation, networking and potential collaboration between research disciplines. The audience will have the chance to vote for their favourite talk, with the winner of the Research Snapshot Event receiving a prize which will be awarded during the end of term social.
