Managing researchers: an introduction for postdocs
It is not unusual for postdocs to find themselves managing other researchers, either formally or informally. It is also rare that they have had any training in this crucial role. This workshop seeks to address this gap by exploring what it means to manage others, what makes a research group productive and what the role of the manager is at each stage of a researcher’s contract or career. It is aimed at those postdocs who manage research staff and who supervise students.
By the end of this session you will understand more about:
what it means to manage staff and students;
the ways to increase the productivity of research groups;
the different roles you have to play during the stages of researchers careers/contracts
