HRA spotlight Bahrenfeld – Mental Wellbeing in Research and Academia
When: Wed, 19.01.2022 12:00 PM until 2:00 PM
For STEM postdocs
Research and academia can be stressful, high pressure and competitive environments. This has had a significant impact on individual physical and mental wellbeing and can be associated with mental health conditions and burnout. However, the onus of mental health lies beyond the individual. Creating a supportive research culture and environment is important to support the mental wellbeing of doctoral candidates and postdocs.
In this HRA spotlight, we will explore challenges to and the role of mental wellbeing in academia, imposter syndrome and reflecting on different approaches to wellbeing and how this may be included in your research environments. We particularly focus on the situation of postdocs in STEM fields (science, technology, engineering and mathematics).
