Our partner graduate school organized an online workshop on “Social Media in Science”. The webinar takes place on September 28 and 29 from 9 to 12.30. More information and registration at their page.
New scientists aspire to contribute to their disciplines by conducting interesting research and publishing their findings to advance science. As part of their training, they are not only responsible for learning and understanding the technical aspects of their scientific work but the fundamental expectations and obligations in its honest execution. Responsible conduct of research and publication ethics can sometimes be challenging. While most researchers may feel they have a good grasp of what they are responsible for and how to avoid misconduct, there are a lot of gray areas that could inadvertently lead them down the wrong path. This interactive talk will aim to address questions that arise as research is conducted, submitted to journals, peer reviewed, and ultimately published. It will also give an overview on the standard forms of misconduct (and how to avoid them) as well as provide answers to questions surrounding authorship and what constitutes a publication.
Our partner graduate school yDiv offers a career planning workshop for PhD students in their first year.
Career planning is a process that requires i.a. self-reflection, exploring of options and networking – activities that young researchers should engage in right from the beginning of their PhD project. This short introductory course is designed to give new doctoral researchers an overview of career planning and to create awareness for its importance. The following topics are covered in the course:
- What is career planning and why think about it now, at the start of your PhD?
- Where do people with a PhD work and which competences are required?
- Planning without a target – how can you prepare for your next step, if you don’t know yet what that next step will be?
- How does career exploration work and how can you set up your own IDP?
