Event description

Description

Research on academic job ads show that universities are looking for an extremely broad set of skills and attributes when looking to hire early career researchers. These range from ‘soft skills’ such as pastoral care, team-work and networking, to highly technical skills in teaching and research. Many of these skills are not, by default, developed as part of the PhD experience, especially if your focus has been primarily on developing your dissertation. In this workshop we will critically examine these skill sets and think about how you might go about developing and evidencing them to future academic employers.


This seminar will be presented by Associate Professor Inger Mewburn (The Thesis Whisperer) who created the famous Thesis Whisperer blog, which has had 4.3 million hits in the last five years and has 60,000 followers on email and social media.The blog is the most popular source of advice and a leading influencer for research supervisors and students in the world because it is grounded in scholarly practice in higher education research.
