CUWiP 2015, Oxford, UK

The Oxford Women in Physics Society is excited to host the first Conference for Undergraduate Women in Physics (CUWiP) UK in the Department of Physics at Oxford University. The goal is to help undergraduate women continue in physics through participation in a conference focused on their development as scientists and showcasing options for their educational and professional futures. The conference will enable attendees to meet, network with, and be inspired by successful women in physics with whom they can share experiences, advice and ideas.

The programme includes

  • Presentations by distinguished physicists on their cutting-edge research and personal career paths
  • Panels of experts to answer questions on graduate study and career opportunities outside academia that are open to students with a physics degree
  • Workshops on effective assertiveness and on successful marketing through CVs, cover letters, and interviews
  • Tours of several laboratories at the University of Oxford and Rutherford Appleton Laboratory
  • Social opportunities for networking
