This Global Health workshop series will offer participants the opportunity to join various online workshops to improve their academic writing, communication skills and other academic "soft skills" relevant to the field of global health and beyond. In addition, this will be a great opportunity to meet and connect with other PhD candidates and early career researchers.
Twelve online half-day workshops are aimed to improve academic skills, relevant for early career researchers, PhD candidates, and postdocs. Over the course of three weeks, experts and senior researchers will facilitate (interactive) workshops, sharing the most common pitfalls in academic writing, and providing tips and tools to give engaging presentations, write stunning papers, and obtain research grants.
Please note that a limited number of spots is available (max. 30).
