We are delighted to announce that REDS conference 2019 is now open for registration and abstract submission.
This year, the theme is: Identity, Agency, and Choice – personal approaches to researcher development
The 2019 conference will be held at Kings College London on the 18th October, 2019.
Dr. Sally Hancock, University of York, who will draw on her ongoing research into the employment outcomes of doctoral graduates in the UK, and her published work using the principles of game theory to examine the career strategies of doctoral scientists.
Dr. Julia Yates, City, University of London, will speak about Career Identities and Future Possible Selves.

There are 12 speaker places available. Deadline for submissions is Friday 21st June. Submissions will be peer-reviewed and selected by Friday 19th July.
We welcome presentations of:
Research outcomes of existing researcher development activity in terms of impact and efficacy of practice.
Research in to new pedagogies, theories or programme concepts for the development of researchers.
Opinion pieces founded in existing research outputs that: project future pedagogical needs and programme concepts for the development of researchers; or, identify key gaps in the current published research in respect of the development of researchers.
NEW! Delegates have the opportunity to submit abstracts for a blog post that will contribute towards a special edition of a REDS blog series that will be launched at REDS conference 2019. We encourage all those who have research they feel is suitable to present at the conference to submit for an oral presentation; however, those who are unable to attend the conference in October, or have research that they feel more suited to a blog post, should consider submitting for this new format.
For examples of the style, presentation, and detail expected, see this example. The abstract submission form is the same for both formats.
More information, including registration and abstract submission, can be found here.
