A session for Postdocs and what the OPdA can offer as support to the Postdoc community.

‘Let's talk about the mental health stigma in academia’ on Postdocs' Work and Family Life Series

This OPdA event will be a panel session about mental health problems among academics.

A recent report indicated that; 'In large-scale surveys, UK higher education staff have reported worse wellbeing than staff in other types of employment (including education, and health and social work) in the areas of work demands, change management, the support provided by managers and clarity about one's role.'*

Speakers

Amber Ruigrok and Nicole Horst

This induction is required for anyone planning to work unsupervised at the Maxwell Centre, Department of Physics.

It has two parts:

  • Part 1 is for people working anywhere in the building
  • Part 2 is only for those working at the Maxwell laboratories

Departmental health and safety induction for graduate students, undergraduate students (Part IB, II, or III) MASt students, visitors and staff starting study or work at the Department of Physics.

Session 1 of this briefing is for everyone and covers what to do in the event of an emergency, and how to report problems.

There will be a short break before Session 2, which is for people carrying out practical experiments in a laboratory, doing other practical (e.g. maintenance) work, managing events or other people.

When there are new staff at an induction, this will be preceded by a short HR induction.

Anyone only working in an office is not required to attend Session 2, unless they manage people or events.
