Today’s scientists and researchers are living in very challenging times. Science has become increasingly interdisciplinary and researchers are faced with extremely important technological advances. Training our researchers to become generalists rather than specialists, and to work in a variety of disciplines is one of our main aims. Our training programme offers researchers a wide range of workshops to enhance their scientific skills, like courses on statistics, microscopy and bioinformatics.There is also more technical training, for instance in specific experimental techniques, so they become better prepared for the varied demands of a scientific career. We also strongly believe that learning non-scientific skills is a very important aspect of a researcher's career path and contributes to their wider professional development. We have a realistic view of how science works and offer courses that include science communication, experimental design, ethics, publication, and funding.
Our courses include:
