OMH Researchers' Association
The OMH Researchers’ Association is open to postdocs, DPhil students and research assistants working in any area related to metabolism. The association organises events where researchers can meet, share expertise and discuss opportunities for collaborations. It is run by a small committee with researchers from several departments and welcomes any ideas for future events.
All researchers are invited to our next event, a careers workshop: 'Getting on in academic and research-related careers', Thursday 24 October, 2-5pm, Sherrington Library, Sherrington Building, DPAG. We'll have sessions with presenters from the University Careers Service and Research Services covering what options are available, how to sharpen your skills to be successful, and how Careers Services resources can help you. We'll also be joined by a current fellow and an MRC funding committee member who'll share their experiences. The afternoon will finish with refreshments sponsored in part by the Biochemical Society. A draft programme is available here. To register for the event, please complete this form.
The Researchers' Association launch event, held on Tuesday 12 February 2019, was an afternoon of lightning talks that attracted around 40 postdocs, students and RAs and was followed by refreshments. This was followed by a successful Seahorse workshop in May on 'Measuring Metabolic Engines and Fuels' organised with Agilent Technologies.
Please contact Jane Itzhaki if you would like to know more about the association or have suggestions for future events.
