Three colleagues talking, lady in centre listening

The Graduate and Researcher College (GRC) supports academic and research staff at all career stages and curates a programme of researcher-focused sessions to inspire, educate and sustain. We focus particularly on supporting professional and career development, positive mental health and wellbeing.

The following virtual sessions will take place this term:

Balancing the conflicting demands of academia in COVID and beyond – 13 October 2021, 2-3pm

Coping with rejection – 09 December 2021, 11am-12pm (please note that this session will not be recorded).

Please see https://www.kent.ac.uk/graduate-researcher-college/academic-and-research-staff/training-and-development/grc-training for further information about these sessions and links to book your place.

(Registration for these sessions is via Target Connect, the GRC event booking system, but please note that you will need to register for an account on Target Connect using your Kent email address before you can book either of these events.)

Dr Alison Charles, Researcher Developer (Academic) in the Graduate and Researcher College said:

“We recognise that staff wellbeing has been affected by the pandemic, among other factors, and are organising these informal sessions where colleagues can take time to explore issues impacting on researcher wellbeing. Join us to discuss common experiences and challenges, and to share advice and support each other in these uncertain times.”

All academic and research colleagues welcome, especially ECRs.
