Talk: Self-Management and Well-Being for Early Career Researchers, 24.04.2023


We look forward to the talk from Dr. Markus Boeckle, "Self-Management and Well-Being for Early Career Researchers" on the 24th of April 2023, 12:00-13:00, online via Zoom, where no registration is needed.

The entrance to the university marks a period of transition for young people. Through this transition, higher education candidates face new challenges, such as making independent decisions about their lives and studies, adjusting to the academic demands of a challenging learning environment, and interacting with a diverse range of new people. In addition, many students must, sometimes for the first time, leave their homes and distance themselves from their support network.

These challenges can affect the mental health and well-being of early career researchers. Indeed, there is evidence that a strain on mental health is placed on students once they start university. Although it decreases throughout their studies (Macaskill, 2013, Mey and Yind, 2015), it does not return to the pre-university level.

The VDS CoBeNe invited Dr. Markus Boeckle, a senior postdoc at the Karl Landsteiner University for Health Sciences and psychotherapist, to give us an overview of the current research on mental health and well-being in science and possible ways to approach and implement support services.
