This workshop is about you. What drives you in your work as a scientist? How can you make this more clear, more visible, and strengthen it?
How to find your balance between research and teaching? Do you dive in the fundamental depths, or do you bring your science to society? Which settings enable you to flourish? How to organize your job in such a way that it brings you enough energy?
Many different questions, all related to the theme of how to stay faithful to yourself in your job. How important and how nice is this? And how hard sometimes? In this workshop, you are offered background knowledge on scientific identity, a platform for thought-sharing with peers, and guidance by a professional coach with a background in science and education.
Having a sense of ‘what really matters to you in your work as a scientist’ can be useful in order to take leadership in your own career. The workshop Scientific Identity can help you to find out.
When you are more aware of this, you can make choices that are more faithful to you and your needs. You may have more directed conversations with your manager or colleagues about your ambitions and plans.
