Working Culture in Academia

16.01.23 - 13:00-15:00

Panel Discussion

Are you a PhD or postdoc who wants to learn about the experiences of our guests about the working culture in academia?

Are you yourself puzzled by some issues related to this topic and wish to get some advice from people who have made it through?

Then come and participate to our panel event on working culture in academia on January 16th from 1pm to 3pm!

You will have the opportunity to hear from our four diverse guests: a coach and associate professor from HUM, a consultant from the union DM (Dansk Magisterforening), an assistant professor from Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller Institute, and an associate professor and head of PhD school from BMB.

Because we also want to give you the opportunity to actively participate to the event by asking your own questions to our guests, we list the topics which will be approached. Feel free to mention your topic(s) of interest by its (their) number(s) and write your questions when registering to the event. If you have additional questions, feel free to include them and we will do our best to address them.
