SCI Career Events

Career launching events

Are you just about to embark on your career, or thinking about switching jobs? Then you might be confused about the myriad of career options available to you and find getting that first step on the ladder a daunting prospect.

Day of Science and Careers

SCI’s Day of Science events are designed to help with just those issues facing an undergraduate, postgraduate, or early career professional. Our London event has been going for a number of years now and has become increasingly popular. Since 2015, we have begun to expand into the regions, launching our first ever Days of Science and Careers Scotland in Aberdeen (2015), Strathclyde, Glasgow (2016) and Edinburgh (2017). These events are free to attend, but please book in advance to secure your place. For more information about the events, and to register, please visit the links below.

Other events

SCI's Kickstart event is a perfect opportunity to meet scientists in business, industry, and science. Six speakers talk for no more than 10 minutes each on their careers in various jobs (industry, teaching, academia, etc), covering what they have learnt, what obstacles they have faced, and more. A short session on CVs, covering letters, and interview preparation is also included.

Young Researchers' Forum events are regularly organised by individual SCI Groups to allow early career scientists to present work to a wider, professional audience. These events regularly award prizes to the most impressive presentations. Check our events page for more information.

CPD Accredited events

SCI is a CPD (Continuing professional development) Standards Accredited Centre. This means that SCI members are able to gain CPD points by attending eligible SCI conferences. For a list of upcoming SCI events where CPD points can be earned please visit our Events section.
