Last year, academia seems to have been struck by several crises including project funding and pressure to publish, replication crisis, etc. You might also have experienced personal moments of despair: How can I ever finish my dissertation, get promoted or find a unique position in academia? While we are aware of the daily struggles as academics, we should also focus on the bright side. So, let’s start the new year with a positive spirit!
We are delighted that two young successful researchers of the RU will share their experiences with us. Relevant questions they will address are:
- What do you love about academia?
- What makes you stay in academia?
- What gives meaning to your work?
