The Merton College dinners allow senior women scientists to meet more junior academics and postdoctoral researchers and encourage open discussion, sharing of experiences and the exchange of advice.
These events are designed not only to catch up on Departmental and University news and events, but also to discuss the postdocs' research.
Postdoctoral researcher Dr Kerstin Timm commented that it was an easy way of having time to talk to senior academics about career progression, which proved very useful and she enjoyed a lovely evening.
