Scientific Leadership

Modern Science is teamwork. But how can young academics go from being a productive member of a scientific team to leading their own? Entry level positions for PhDs in Science often require the infamous "people skills". The authors aim to equip young academics with the right ideas and strategies for their scientific leadership development. Become a successful leader not with tricks, but with an inspiring and straightforward vision and mission, the correct mindset, and effective teamwork.

  • Based on international courses by both authors on scientific leadership.
  • Learn time and project management, supervision, intuition and leading a team.
  • Aimed at PhD students and beginners in the academic fields.
