Doctoral Workshops: Basic Information

The CRIS support to doctoral students will pursue four main objectives:

  1. reinforce the on-going training of doctoral students,
  2. support personal and academic development during the thesis period, 
  3. coordinate the “comités de suivi”,
  4. strengthen the capacity of doctoral students to participate to international academic life.

The two pillars of this strategy are the weekly CRIS scientific seminars (every Friday 11:30-13:00) and the doctoral workshops (on Fridays 14:00-16:00), coordinated by Martin Aranguren. In particular, the doctoral workshop proposes a series of training sessions for all CRIS doctoral (and visiting) students. During the year we organise around ten/twelve meetings, including the following activities:

  1. Improve your draft/Improve your presentation skills: We call upon doctoral students to present a paper draft and a researcher to be discussant of the work. The writing workshops are the cornerstone of the CRIS Doctoral workshops.
  2. Sessions organised by doctoral students: Doctoral students are called up to the organisation of activities we deem vital for their training and professional/intellectual development. Potential examples (but of course other forms of activity can be envisaged) are: atelier to apply for an ATER, invitation of a researcher to discuss about her/his work and employed methodology.
  3. General Sessions: During these sessions researchers propose specific training on certain research-related issues, e.g. epistemology, the problem of causation, data visualization. We also proposed workshops on professional development, e.g. how to target reviews, how to look for and get a job, barriers to thesis completion, and gender issues in academia. In the past we also proposed a two-day intensive workshop on academic writing (in English) lead by Haley McAvay.
