Are you considering becoming a PI? What does it mean to be a PI and what are the routes to becoming one?

This session is an online version of the usual classroom course.

28th January - 1400-1700

Are you considering becoming a PI? What does it mean to be a PI and what are the routes to becoming one? This virtual workshop will include input from a PI and a researcher who has recently obtained a fellowship. It will explore what is important for you, the funders and departments. They are all critical in enabling the transition from postdoc to research independence or to alternative successful careers. There is no single route to becoming a PI, so the session focuses on what you can do to create opportunities and increase your chances of becoming a PI.

The emphasis of this course is on exploration, on learning from those who made the transition, and from each other. There is an element of ‘Are you sure this is what you want?’ as we look at the first year or so in the life of a PI and the challenges they face to keep going.

This session will also explore the perspective of the funders and of departments, as both are critical in enabling the transition from postdoc to research independence.
