"Planning Your Research Career" Workshop

"Planning Your Research Career" workshop

As a researcher you probably know you should plan your research career and you probably do have some ideas of what you would like to achieve in the future. But you probably haven’t taken some dedicated time to work out what you should either 1) be achieving or 2) would like to be achieving. This workshop will give the thinking time and tools to put together a realistic and achievable plan for your research career over the next 3-5 years. We will also work backwards to where you are currently and help you to set goals for shorter term achievements. 

In this workshop you will be sent material before the workshop (should take around 5-10 minutes to complete) for you bring along to the session so you can get the most out of the experience.

In this workshop you will learn:

  • what are reasonable research goals for your discipline and stage of career
  • the keys to successful goal setting and goal achievement
  • how to plan in the long term and work backwards to the here and now
  • how to ensure you get some research outputs soon.

Who is it for: Individual researchers, research teams and research team leaders.

Length: 2 hours

Where: This will be an online workshop. Details on how to join will be sent out by Angela Bird closer to the time.
