The BU Research Staff Association would like to invite all research staff to an in-person meet up for coffee and cake on Thursday 24 November on Talbot Campus in F106 (Fusion Building) between 12 and 1pm.
Bring your lunch and a coffee, and we will provide the cake! (Note: it may not look as good as this one does.)
This will be an opportunity for you to meet the Research Staff Association (RSA) Reps. We currently have three reps from HSS (Sophia Amenyah, Michelle Heward, Gladys Yinusa), three from FST (Sarah Elliott, Kim Davies and Sam Greenhill) and one from BUBS (Raf Nicholson).
This will also be an opportunity for research staff members to meet those within the same community, and to provide the opportunity for us all to get to know each other and support each other.
The RSA is a network to support research staff on fixed term contracts and to provide a mechanism to feed back to the university any issues or problems that arise.
At the meet-up, we will also be discussing the possibility of mentoring, within our departments and faculties – please do come along if you are interested in hearing more about mentoring, or want to provide some input into how BU can best support your development as a researcher via mentoring.
We would also like to take this opportunity to advertise for a rep from the Faculty of Media and Communications which is currently the only faculty not represented by a RSA rep. Please contact us if you are interested.
We hope to see you on 24 November!
