Photos from our Promotions Workshop

On Monday, 13th November – despite the unpleasant conditions brought by Storm Debi – we were delighted to host an informal discussion around the University’s Academic Promotions process; with valuable input from colleagues who have journeyed through the system and those currently engaging with the process.

We plan to hold an in-depth information session with colleagues from UCD Promotions and Grading and a former member of the Faculty Promotions Committee in early T2 2024.  Notification of the date will be sent as soon as possible.

Pint of Postdoc

Inspired by Pint of Science, we are supporting the UCD ‘Pint of Postdoc’ event being organised by the CHAS Post Doc Forum.

This event will acknowledge the hard work of postdocs at UCD during a lighthearted, informal gathering where participants will give 5 minute presentations about whatever they want followed by questions. Slides, interpretive dance, song, poetry … all types of presentations are welcome. After a quick ice breaker at 4 pm, talks will begin and from 6 pm there will be an opportunity to vote for your favourite talk followed by prize giving, plus time to enjoy some chats, free food and refreshments.

Mentoring Workshop for Assistant Professors

On Tuesday 12th September we held the first of our information sessions aimed at Assistant Professors. This event focused on exploring the various mentoring opportunities that are currently available to Assistant Professors at UCD.

Assistant Professors from across the College of Science gathered for lunch to meet and mingle with each other. The lunch provided a great opportunity to network and befriend fellow Assistant Professors working in different Schools and to discuss shared experiences and desires for mentoring. As the workshop began, Ms Navneet Kaur from UCD People and Organisation Development led the information session focused on helping those in attendance to develop their career in UCD through mentoring. The presentation was highly informative, and Ms Kaur has kindly allowed the slides to be shared via our website. You can find the slides here: Mentoring at UCD Presentation

This workshop will be followed by further events for Assistant Professors, that will run over the rest of the academic year as we progress with our new Culturally Responsive Mentoring initiative in the College of Science. Stay tuned for further information on future workshops.
