Future Faculty invites - Leadership in Academy

Thu. 26 Feb, 2015 8:30 - 10:30
This event does not repeat

Future faculty invites young scientists that hold a PhD to a workshop in

Leadership in Academy

aimed towards young researchers (PhDs) with a group or with the intention to start a group in the future

As if it is not enough to get funded and publish well to get a shot at a permanent research position – you also need to be a good leader when you finally get the chance. Your scientific production is dependent on your research group and if the group runs into trouble leadership is needed. Leadership in the academic setting is something all of us have been exposed to but very few have formal training in. Do you need to be a “born leader” to manage or are there strategies that we can adopt and become a “leader”? What are the pitfalls? What advice can we get? This workshop aims at discussing leadership in the specific academic setting. Welcome to an interesting workshop together with some people that have taken the big leap to manage a group of their own.

Program:

9.30-10.15 Markus Hällgren ”Managing academic projects: a contradiction in terms?”

10.15-10.45 Lena Gunhaga “Flexible leadership”

10.45-11.15 Andrei Chabes “Different styles of Leadership in Academy” 11.15-11.30 Discussion With Coffee and Sandwiches

Room E04, lecture hall.

Welcome!

Future faculty is a special interest organization for young PhD scientists actively involved in research but without a permanent position at the Faculty of Medicine. Future faculty supports junior scientists by spreading information within career related field of interests but should also facilitate junior scientist networking within and outside our own faculty and Umeå University.

Aging of societies, bodies and minds: Trends, evolution of functions and health 2-3 June Umeå

Tue. 2 Jun, 2015 1:00 - Thu. 4 Jun, 2015 2:00
This event does not repeat

The lifespan of humans is steadily increasing in most countries, which will have fundamental implications for our society in the future. World-leading scientists discuss this development, in a meeting commemorating the 275 year anniversary of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences.

Place: Aula Nordica
Organiser: The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences 
Kontaktperson:This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.


On 2-3 June, the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences will hold a symposium on the subject of aging together with Umeå University. Some important issues on future population levels as well as what happens in your brain and body with age will be raised. The event takes place in Aula Nordica at Umeå University and is open to the public and free of charge – please register before 26 May.

The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences celebrates its 275 year anniversary this year and it is no coincidence that Umeå has been chosen to host the event as several of its members of the presiding committee can be found in Umeå. Already a year ago the question of a celebration in Umeå was posed to the Academy.

Lars Nyberg, head of the Umeå Center for Functional Brain Imaging (UFBI), says that he suggested aging as the theme since research at several faculties at Umeå University has a strong connection with aging.

"Aging is something that affects everyone. Many countries have a largely aging population and many elderly are stricken with metabolic disease and diabetes. What are the consequences and wherein are the challenges when it comes to aging in the future?" Lars Nyberg asks himself.

The symposium will be held in English and is entitled "Aging of societies, bodies, and minds: trends, evolution of functions, and health". Chairs for the two days are researchers at Umeå University and members of the Academy: Gunnar Malmberg, Professor of Applied Geography, Helena Edlund, Professor of Molecular and Developmental Biology, Professor Emeritur Hans-Wolf Watz, Bernt Eric Uhlin, Professor of Medical Microbiology, and Lars Nyberg, Professor of Psychology and Neuroscience. Professor Emerita, Marianne Rasmuson, will also contribute.

Speakers from Harvard University, Vienna Institute of Demography, University College of London and University of California have also been invited.

Would you like to know more?

Read more about the symposium and register before 26 May.

Who should attend:
This symposium should be highly interesting for scientists, and representatives from SMEs and the pharmaceutical industry working in the field of antibacterial drug discovery. The aims are to look into the future, at where and how new antibiotics will be discovered, and to discuss the challenges that need to be addressed in developing them. The lectures will be given by leading international scientists in the field. There will also be a poster session where we encourage scientists and company representatives to present and pitch their latest
antibacterial research.

Topics
The following will be covered:

  • Finding new chemical entities for antibacterials
    (Karen Bush, USA; Gerry Wright, Canada; Roger Linington, Canada)
  • Alternatives to traditional antibiotics
    (Mike Pucci, USA; Bob Hancock, Canada)
  • Gram negative antibacterial entry
    (Malcolm Page, Switzerland; Mike Dawson, UK)
  • Antibacterial resistance
