Transferable Skills Training offered to its doctoral and postdoctoral candidates consists of a wide range of voluntary courses grouped into two areas: Academic Performance and Management Competencies. Doctoral candidates should contact their program coordinator about number and type of courses required for their doctoral studies.
Academic performance courses are designed to enhance the professional potential of young researchers focussing on three core subjects: Research Integrity, Presentation & Publication and Teaching.
Performing research with integrity is fundamental to work as a scientist or professional and entails learning core aspects of responsible conduct of research and data management.
Critical to almost any career is the ability to communicate effectively, concisely and correctly in written, spoken and visual forms to multiple audiences using a wide range of media.
High standards of professionalism in teaching is a basic requirement for employability in research careers as well as in industry or in the public sector.
