The J Kenyon Mason Institute (MI) regularly holds events geared towards younger scholars and hosted an event on the Monday 19 - Tuesday 20 April 2021 on career development and support, entitled ‘Developing a career in bioethics and health law’.

This two-day virtual workshop was targeted to 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.

The event consisted of several invited (external and internal) speakers, including a mix of career level and career type (academic, policy, practice), who spoke to their career experiences. The four sessions took place over two days, focusing on PhD research proposals and thesis writing; writing and publishing research; grant funding (how to, resources); and career opportunities.

Recordings of each session can be found below:

Session 1 - Writing PhD research proposals and thesis writing - Jonathan Ives (Bristol) and Mary Neal (Strathclyde)

Session 2: Writing and publishing your research - Mikey Dunn (Oxford) and Sara Fovargue (Lancaster)

Session 3: Writing grant applications - Lucy Frith (Liverpool) and Sarah Chan (Edinburgh)

Session 4: Career opportunities in bioethics and health law -  Mary Guy (Lancaster) and Simon Woods (Newcastle)
