[Aspiring Professionals SIG]: Pursuing a research/academic career

Synopsis

A career in academia is not for everyone, and neither is a career as a researcher. Wait – aren’t these the same thing? Not necessarily. Come along to join our exploration of ‘same but different’ and how to prepare for either or both.
