Scope
Workshop summary
Being a researcher can be the best job in the world. You get to follow your passions. You have the luxury of exploring areas youre interested in. You can satisfy your curiosity. You might even make a difference in the world. Most researchers I meet love doing research. But research is also challenging. Despite all the attractions of a research career, the reality is that many researchers get worn down by the system, the setbacks and the challenges. Even more so in these difficult days.
So if you want to stay well and be productive, dont leave it to chance. You need to look after yourself. Ive worked with thousands of researchers across the world, and Im going to highlight some key strategies that people have used to be productive researchers and stay well during their PhD, post-doc or research career.
