Life Science Guides
One of the biggest challenges for life scientists is working within budgets to make grants and funding go further. In this Life Scientist's Guide To Cost-Saving In The Lab, neuroscience PhD student Karolina Farrell from UCL shares her top tips for cutting costs (not corners) in the lab...
Promoting yourself and your work is an important part of any life scientists’ career, but that doesn’t mean it’s always easy. To help get you started, we’ve put together The Life Scientist's Guide to Promoting Yourself and Your Work. We hope it gives you the tools and know-how to get your research heard, and the confidence to get out there and share your brilliance.
One of the things we’re most passionate about is supporting early career life scientists.
As well as publishing our PhD guides here on the blog, speaking to brilliant PhDs for our ‘Interviews with Scientists’ series, and giving our community a platform via our guest blogs, we also have a whole host of resources to help and support you once you get going in the lab. Read on to find out about them...
We know you love what you do, and we understand how hard life scientists work – and that it’s often out of choice, rather than necessity. But working hard doesn’t mean you have to neglect yourself. Read our guide to find out what wellbeing actually is, and how we scientists can look after ourselves better, and support our colleagues to do the same.
As scientists ourselves, we know how daunting it feels when you embark upon on your first PhD. Especially right at the beginning, when everything can feel totally new and overwhelming.
To show you just how much support there is for you in the life science community from your peers (and from us!) we’ve put together The Life Scientists’ Guide for New PhD Students. Here, you’ll find the fantastic advice our fellow scientists have shared with us, as well as a few tips from our personal experience.
