Postdocs' Work and Family Life Seminar Series new Wed 13 Nov 2019   12:30 Finished

The next event on ‘Postdocs’ Work and Family Life Seminar Series’ will be a panel session about how academics improve their wellbeing and productivity with hobbies and interests.

Elena Pavlenko and Amber Ruigrok will be sharing their own mental health challenges as academics and their strategies for coping.

Please register your interest in this well-being event and feel free to bring your lunch. Coffee/tea will be available.
