BSI 'Webinar series for early career researchers' - Building resilience, 2020
Webinar date: 10 Feb 2020 12:30-13:15 (UK)
BSI have joined forces with The Physiological Society to organise a three-part webinar series for early career researchers. This series has been designed to help build your soft skills providing expert insight on building resilience and transitioning to independence, as well as networking and building an online presence.
Registration is free for members of the British Society for Immunology and The Physiological Society.
The first webinar of the series will look into building your resilience. Resilience is the capacity to recover quickly from difficulties and is part of the phenotype of the successful scientist: resilience in the face of experiments failing, papers being rejected, short term contracts, minimal wages and a terrifying lack of job security.
