Research Young Academy Groningen Activities

Support for staff and students

Members of the Young Academy Groningen are involved in various courses and training opportunities that reach out to a broad range of academic staff and students at the UG/UMCG.

Early Career Researchers

The Young Academy Groningen works towards a supportive working environment for early-career researchers at the UG. Members promotes mentorship and coaching for early-career researchers and explores a more individually tailored and diverse tenure-track system, which rewards papers and grants as well as teaching and other contributions to the organisation.

In the past the Young Academy has organized workshops for young academic research staff on Negotiation Strategies, Work-Life balance and science policy. As we offer more training and workshops we will list them here. We have ties with the UG Talent Development team and can offer advise to persons at early stages of their academic careers. If you are a postdoc, tenure-track assistant, associate professor or non tenure track faculty member and would like to speak with Young Academy members on various career-related topics, please feel free to contact us.

Throughout the academic year we hold bimonthly Early Career Research Lunches where all early career researchers are welcome to join for a free lunch and discuss various career-related topics together with a peer network who are in a similar career stage.

Bachelor's, Master's and PhD students

As ambassadors for science and scholarship, members of the Young Academy Groningen are happy to share their experiences in academic research with students, PhDs and postdocs. If you would like to inquire about what the Young Academy can offer for engaging with students, please see our list of current members and contact us here.
