Mentoring Cafes

The BSA is launching a new initiative to support early career researchers.  Learn from your peers' vision and experience.

Mentoring aims to provide access to the knowledge and wealth of experience of senior sociologists whilst providing impartial support and independent advice.  It will focus on help with applying for research funding and jobs, guidance on writing for publications and the REF and much more. Benefits include, but are not limited to, gaining support, receiving career advice and planning, developing your research skills and access to collaboration opportunities. Realise your full potential!
