What makes a good PI? - GRASP seminar with discussion and drinks reception

Mon 24 Nov 2014


This evening seminar will focus on what it takes to be a good leader and team manager in a research group – from recruiting the right people, through communication skills, building professional relationships and motivating others, to problem and conflict resolution. Researchers at different stages of their career will share their own experiences and Sharon Saunders will describe training available for University members as well as sharing preliminary findings of what advice new group leaders give to postdocs. The questions and discussions will be followed by a drinks reception, providing the opportunity for ongoing discussion with the speakers and attendees.

Target audience

Early career researchers, including PhD students, postdocs and new PIs.
