In recent times, good scientific practice, good leadership, and the prevention of power abuse have become a controversial debated topic in academia. Inherent flaws in the academic system like short-term work contracts, unclear or unrealistic expectations, and communication conflicts with colleagues, supervisors, or project partners could lead to the abuse of power.
The “Prevention of Power Abuse” and "Mental Health" Working Groups of the Leibniz PhD Network, representing around 4000 doctoral researchers in Germany, have organized a webinar to provide strategies and tools for junior researchers to cope with career uncertainties, resolve conflicts and deal with potential power abuse.
Our invited speakers are:
*** Prof. Claudia Peus (Technical University Munich),
Topic: Leadership in Academia
*** Prof. Thomas Rigotti (Leibniz Institute for Resilience Research),
Topic: Leadership and workplace insecurities
Moderator: Dr. Elliot Brown (Neuroscientist, Scientific Advisor and Mental Health Advocate at Charité Berlin)
