According to some reports, a third of PhD students will face mental health issues, and academic staff report worse wellbeing than many other professions. In this episode we listen to academics, funders and publishers as they share their thoughts.
I have recently come across this amazing podcast providing key ingredients to success in all areas of science. Thanks Dr. Higgins for your wisdom and foresight. I wish more successful investigators understood the importance of gaining skills beyond the bench.
I love this podcast. It provides listeners with unique insight into the lives of scientists and the world of academia. Podcasts like these are rare and as a PhD student, it can be incredibly helpful to listen to experienced individuals in the field.
Dr. Higgins and his guests/collaborators are doing a great service to current and future academics worldwide, articulating something that doesn’t quite make for a grabby, sensationalist headline: scientists are just people
Very interesting interviews with scientists about the experience of being a scientist. The guests are very candid, and it covers both the positive and less positive aspects of academia. Lots of food for thought, and nicely produced too.
Excellent, just found these pods but so glad they exist!
