"Life as an academic, a creative, sustained and fun adventure"

Having a successful academic career may involve different goals for different people, but we have the unique opportunity to make it exciting, engaging, and genuinely rewarding in a variety of ways. I focus on how we can all be creative, do what we love, and carry out a lifetime of truly joyous research. Done the right way, we should never feel pressure to "publish or perish." Rather we should feel the thrill of doing something meaningful, enjoyable, and fulfilling. In addition "publishing" may become an old-fashioned way of thinking of producing research in the near future. I'll also suggest some ways in which we can future-proof our research, reach broader audiences, and make a difference without a threat of burn-out. We are privileged like few other professions to make a contribution that will help make the world a better place and set us on a life-long quest of discovery.

“Finding Life, Leisure and Pleasure in the PhD Treadmill”

Work-life balance, as clichéd as it sounds, is one of the biggest challenges during and after PhD. While matters of life, pleasure, leisure and work are quite personal and contingent on the life-stage and life-goals of individuals, hearing other people’s subjective opinions and experiences can also undoubtedly give you some tools to better face some adversities of early stage academia. This workshop will be about this. My goal is to start a dialogue that goes beyond the advice you might have heard elsewhere. I hope to, interactively and candidly, share my experiences: victories and missteps altogether. You can follow my advice; yet, in the end the point is finding that equilibrium where you want to be, not where you think you should be.

"Advancing Your Early Academic Career"

This workshop will focus on how to transition from PhD student to full time academic. We will discuss how to navigate the academic environment and how to maximise your chances of getting your first post and sustaining a strong research career, whilst still juggling teaching and administrative duties. The talk will focus more on the Australasian environment, but the principles discussed are universal. After this workshop attendees should have a better understanding of how to approach the job market, how to market themselves to prospective employers/promotion committees, what 'counts' in academia, and how to strategise your early career to ensure you maintain momentum throughout your academic life. The workshop will allow plenty of time for questions and answers from attendees.
