Management Skills for Researchers Workshop

Unfortunately, OPA must cancel the 2020 sessions of this event due to COVID-19-related budgetary constraints. We hope to schedule the event for 2021. We will update this website and begin advertising when we schedule the next session.

This half-day, online workshop provides an overview of teamwork and influencing techniques, which have direct application in the academic lab setting, grant-driven research, and the public and private world of research. This interactive workshop will help participants understand the skills necessary to gain a better understanding of self and how to assess others abilities and leverage those strengths to improve their working relationships and work satisfaction.
