Testimonials from former participants:
- “Clarifying and inspiring. Has helped me think about my skills, competency and possibilities.”
- “I felt this course was very good in terms of starting thinking about my career and finding out about my options. I think it is a really good course even for people who did not think much about what they want to work with in the future. Good exercises!“
- “It got me thinking and made me aware of leanings (technical vs service, etc.) and good ideas and advice. Also clarified some questions in group discussions and lunch. Great!”
About the presenter:
Dr Kerstin Fritsches Kerstin is a former research fellow who spent the majority of her 12-year research career on soft money, with first-hand experience of the challenges facing early career researchers and a strong track record in postdoc affairs and career development. A lack of effective career training for PhDs led Kerstin to found PostdocTraining in 2011, to bridge a gap in professional development by delivering support tailored specifically for PhD candidates and postdocs.
