Early Career Researcher Opportunities
Early Career Researchers play a key role in suicide prevention and the work of IASP. As our primary opportunity for shared learning, IASP World Congresses aim to support and showcase the work within the early career community and we are excited to provide the following opportunities.
IASP Early Career Group Workshop
The aim of this workshop is to bring together both students and early career researchers who are working across the globe in the area of suicide prevention to share their work, learn from each other and enjoy some informal networking.
The session will be hosted by Professor Jo Robinson from Orygen in Melbourne and VP of IASP and Dr Nuša Zadravec Šedivy from the University of Primorska. The session will include a series of short Lightning presentations by early career researchers, a conversation with 2 journal editors (Rory O’Connor and Jane Pirkis) and a panel discussion including topics such as supervision and mentoring, academic careers and ECR wellbeing.
The session is free to all conference delegates who are either students or who have completed their PhDs within the past 5 years, so if this is you then please come and join us.
Morning tea and a light lunch will be provided.
Places are strictly limited so please register early to ensure you don’t miss out.
Pecha Kucha Event
The highly anticipated Pecha Kucha event will return for the IASP 32nd World Congress in Slovenia. The event will be held on Wednesday, 20 September 2023 at 7:30 PM at Sky Bar Bushy at the Art Hotel Tartini in Piran. Don’t miss this fantastic opportunity to join us and showcase your research!
Pecha Kucha, meaning “Chit-Chat” in Japanese, is a dynamic form of storytelling. It’s a perfect platform for ECRs to hone their ‘elevator pitch’ skills in a lively and encouraging setting, where they must convey their research findings to a captivated audience quickly and convincingly.
Participants will present their work using 20 slides, each shown for 20 seconds – resulting in a captivating 6-minute and 40-second presentation. It’s a challenge, but effective communication of research is key to success and reaching a wider audience. Pecha Kucha can be a powerful way to disseminate findings and increase the chance of translation into policy and practice. Plus, an audience award awaits the winner with an opportunity to participate in the IASP podcast and one-year IASP membership up for grabs!
Pecha Kucha celebrates the exceptional talent, passion, and leadership potential of emerging ECRs by showcasing their outstanding suicide prevention research. This event provides a glimpse into the latest findings in the field, fosters meaningful conversations, and creates opportunities for learning and collaboration among a diverse audience of ECRs, mid-career, and senior researchers alike.
Join us for a night of ideas, connections, and inspiration! Discover the remarkable work of our ECRs and expand your network. Welcome light refreshments will be provided for free, and additional food and drink options will be available for purchase.
