‘Careers in Higher Education (Research)’ seminar explores professional identities and well-being of early-career higher education researchers. The seminar aims to give examples of different career paths as well as provide an opportunity to make visible the skills of early-career researchers and tacit knowledge in academia through presentations and peer group discussions. Higher education career development will be explored particularly in relation to work-life balance and well-being. Moreover, this seminar, organised for the first time, brings together multidisciplinary and multilingual early-career higher education researchers at a time when opportunities for social interaction have been limited due to the pandemic.
Location: Tampere University, city centre campus, Linna building, room K110, and online (Zoom link will be sent to the registered participants).
Organisers: This event is jointly organised by the Network of Finland-based early-career higher education researchers, Higher Education in Transition – HET (Tampere University), Higher Education Group – HEG (Tampere University) and the Consortium of Higher Education Researchers in Finland – CHERIF.
The Network of Finland-based early-career higher education researchers is an informal subgroup of the Consortium of Higher Education Researchers in Finland (CHERIF). We are a group of researchers in different positions (master students, doctoral researchers, postdoctoral researchers or similar positions) in various higher education institutions (or institutions near to higher education) in Finland/outside Finland that share the interest in researching Finnish higher education. We operate as an informal network which means that we are not an official organisation, and we do not have membership fees. Our network is open to all that consider themselves as ‘Finland-based early-career higher education researchers’. If you would like to know more about the network, please visit this webpage.
Participation: This seminar is free of charge, and it is open to all those who consider themselves Finland-based early-career higher education researchers. If you would like to participate onsite in Tampere, we encourage you to ask your home institution/faculty/research group for a possibility of covering your travel expenses.
Registration for onsite participation is now closed. If you would like to register for participating online, please write to firstname.lastname@example.org to receive the Zoom link.
