For early career researchers: Dynamics of Youth meets Child Health event

Children exploring nature

Are you a postdoc or assistant professor researching child or youth development, or almost done with your PhD on this topic? We are very happy to invite you to a joint meeting of Child Health (UMC Utrecht) and Dynamics of Youth (Utrecht University).

Dynamics of Youth and Child Health have fostered a long-standing collaboration. However, we found that early-career researchers in the field of child development are not always aware of each other’s existence, while a lot of you have shared interests, methodologies, and face similar scientific challenges.

In this upcoming meeting, our aim is to help you expand your professional network. Imagine finding that one person that could jumpstart a new (part of your) project, solve a problem, or simply provide a fresh perspective on your research question.

For whom?

Postdocs, assistant professors, and 3rd/4th year PhD students

Should I prepare?

Not really. We will ask you to give a short introduction about yourself and your research. It would be helpful if you already think about the following questions:

  1. What part of your work gets you out of bed in the morning?
  2. What challenge are you most proud to have overcome in your research?
  3. Bring an object or photo of something that characterizes your research and tell us why you brought it.

The whole setting will be informal, so no PowerPoint or poster presentation is needed. Just be there, meet new people, and have fun.

Invite your colleague

Feel free to forward this message to other colleagues who might be interested. Looking forward to seeing you!
