Graduate Campus Courses
The University of Lausanne offers a number of workshops designed for doctoral candidates and postdocs of all faculties.
These workshops are free of charge for doctoral candidates enrolled at UNIL and postdocs with a valid contract.
A practical look at the development of an academic career, whatever the scientific discipline: from putting together your CV to knowing what to focus on next. We review the path from doctorate to professorship, to understand how good preparation involves much more than an impressive list of publications. Through discussion and practical work, we review the importance of contribution to the scientific community as much as research expertise, teaching experience and active participation in academic life. Includes the teaching philosophy statement as well as individual feedback on the CV.
Language: the workshop presentations will be provided in English. Participants will have the option of preparing their work in French or English.
Networking is commonly acknowledged to be vital for professional development, but can be a challenge for many. How can we best make a connection with others, in person and online? What impact can it have for our careers, whether in research or elsewhere? How to maintain authenticity while we move outside our personal comfort zones? In this highly interactive, practical workshop, we will explore the benefits and techniques of networking for professional development.

Research has a long tradition of being shared and developed through papers, meetings, conferences and conversations. Sharing research online is rapidly becoming part of the same process and is no different once you know how it is done. Whether in an academic or a non-academic research career, when you share on the various platforms you integrate into your daily workflows, you create new possibilities for research, collaborative partnerships and career opportunities.

This 2-day, highly interactive and practical workshop will take you through the various negotiation steps, each with its specific mind-set.
