The “BIST- Leadership in Action” course for post-doctoral researchers, which has been exclusively designed using VITAE’s framework in close collaboration with BIST, provides the opportunity to focus on developing skills for successful self-management and development to progress in your professional career.
What can you do to make yourself a more effective doctoral researcher and get the most out of your PhD?
BIST centres by using the VITAE’s framework, have organised an interactive and intensive two-day course: “How to succeed in your PhD?”, which has been designed for you as first year doctoral researcher and will look at practical ways to increase your effectiveness and meet the challenges of your PhD.
This workshop will enable senior researchers to master the challenges related to the interpersonal aspects of doing science and to confidently fulfil their leadership role.
The programme will enable you to build effective relationships by boosting your communication skills and changing your mindset to positively impact your results.
The first session will concentrate on the well-established methods of classical transgenesis and gene-targeting via embryonic stem cells, and will include examples of how to produce a range of mutation types; for example over-expression models, gene knock-outs and point mutations, both constitutive and conditional.
The second session will address more recent developments, such as the use of gene-editing nucleases, their advantages and limitations, and novel methods of gene transfer.
