Webinar: Research careers, well-being and mental health on 3 February 2021

The Association for Professionals in Doctoral Education (PRIDE network) aims to be the leading professional resource for the advancement of professionals in doctoral education.

Due to high demand, they are doing a follow-up webinar to the December 2, 2020 PRIDE webinar in which they explored the topic “Careers in academia: well-being and mental health of young researchers”. Both previous speakers are thankfully ready to join them again. The follow-up will take place on February 3, 2021 at 10 am (CEU).

Gábor Kismihókis, expert in Researcher Career Management and chair of the the recently started COST Action on Researcher Mental Health will discuss the following questions: Which factors of the labor market in academia challenge the well-being of young researchers? How will this labor market develop in future? Will we lose talented young people because a job in academia gets unattractive, also because it threatens well-being and mental health?

Desiree Dickerson, the second speaker, will explore the more individual level of well-being and stress: How is stress created on the individual level? How are emotions translated in which symptoms? How can someone cope with stress (as individual)? What strategies can someone develop (individual level, working context, organisational level)? How can young researchers be empowered to cope with stress? How can social support be created?

After a short input of both experts, they will be respond to questions PRIDE has received and which will come up during the webinar.
