Workshop on Science Communication for PhD students
Dr. Jidnyasa Mulekar
Date: March 21-22, 2020
Venue: Science Media Centre, IISER Pune

Overview: PhD. is like a delicious dish with many ingredients. One ingredient goes missing, and the taste alters. Literature research, experimental work, verbal communication, written communication, presentation skill and understanding are the key ingredients here. Often in the tenure of PhD, one focuses more on the experimental work than everything else. Therefore, the flavor of the remaining ingredients is diminished. In this workshop, trained researcher and science writer Dr. Jidnyasa Mulekar will give lessons on these remaining flavors of a PhD programme.  

Key Highlights:

1. Developing the concept of scientific communication
2. Basics of English language and grammar
3. How to maintain a good lab journal – recommended practices
4. Basics of writing a scientific journal article
5. How to present a paper to lay-readers
6. A session with a current post-doctoral fellow at NIH, Bethesda, USA on verbal communication skills (tentative)

Last Date for Registration: February 29, 2020

Registration: No registration fee. Accommodation and food during the entire duration of the workshop will be provided. Traveling allowance is not included.
