Early Career Alcohol Research Symposium 7-8 July 2020

In a time where many other research interactions have been halted, the Sheffield Alcohol Research Group is pleased to host a new annual symposium: the “Early Career Alcohol Research Symposium”.

Lots of different types of alcohol in a bar in Scotland.

This two day symposium is aimed at UK-based early career researchers working in the field of alcohol research from both public health and social perspectives. We define early career researchers as up to five years post-doctoral or no more than seven years in alcohol research (excluding Bachelors and Masters degrees). Please contact the Organising Committee if you are unsure whether you meet this definition.

The programme will also include social activities to encourage networking, foster collaboration and build a community among the next generation of alcohol researchers in the UK.The programme will feature early career researchers presenting and discussing each other’s research, as well as a career development session. The meeting will be held online through the Blackboard Collaborate platform at the University of Sheffield, which is accessible through web browsers without downloading any new software.
