AU Career PhD & JR

Only for postdocs and assistant professors.

While a joyful curiosity might be the fuel of research, doing it day-to-day can be really tough. The purpose of this practical and pragmatic session is to use the tools of leading others to help us lead ourselves: to move – even just a little bit – from a sense of merely surviving within the research process to thriving within it. In this welcoming, safe, environment, we will explore four elements of leadership and in the process, investigate practical strategies to help us boost our resilience and productivity, and reduce our procrastination.

This programme is then for those who are both curious to learn and want practical strategies to do both research and well-being just a little bit better

When: 7 December 2023, 09.00-12.00

Where: Meeting Room 1, Building 1427
