30 June, 2017 - Tricks of the Trade: Working Across Disciplines: concepts, language and ways of working

Time: 10:00:00 - 14:00:00

The challenges facing early career researchers include the following tensions: - being ambitious but ensuring aims are achievable - being focussed but not too narrow and being open to new ideas and directions - being clear about one’s own disciplinary contribution but also its limitations and the contributions of other disciplines - focusing on one’s academic career vs its translation into policy and practice - working hard but having a life outside work … In this talk, Susan Michie will discuss these issues in relation to her own career and experience and help participants think about these issues in relation to their current dilemmas and future career plans. The UCL Collaborative Social Science Domain's series of 'Tricks of the Trade' conversations bring together established academics with early career researchers (ECRs). These events are an ideal opportunity for ECRS to engage with the insights that more experienced researchers have gained over the years.
