Stand Out Skills is a new webinar series for early career researchers working in materials science disciplines. Hosted by experts, each episode will explore useful presentation, communication, or career skills for researchers which aren’t normally taught as a part of traditional education pathways for materials scientists.

Through Stand Out Skills webinars, you will learn a host of new abilities to complement your research career, including how to build your own research website, improve your academic CV and utilise new technologies to present your work more effectively.

The series will support your early career journey and help you to build a repertoire of valuable new skills to distinguish yourself and thrive in your research community.

In the third episode of our Stand Out Skills Webinar Series, Jess Popplewell, Careers Consultant at Imperial College London, will walk you through the process of composing an academic CV and making sure that it helps you stand out from the crowd.
