Do you feel swamped by everything needing to be done as a researcher?
Does the important (your career) often come second to the urgent (other people's)?
This interactive half day course covers aspects required to be better at time, project and career management for postdocs.
The course should provide information, a confidence boost, practice and signposting to further help. A course site will help you access materials used on the day, set your objectives and commit to your actions from the course. A three month accountability check-in will help you stick to the actions!
