November 2023

This two-day workshop is specifically designed for junior faculty who lead research teams.

The workshops are based upon Dr. Carl M. Cohen’s popular book “Lab Dynamics: Management and Leadership Skills for Scientists” and distill the key lessons for managing and leading a scientific team and for dealing with challenging situations and people in the scientific workplace. These are not generic workshops – they are specifically focused on situations that academic scientists face every day — discussing data, negotiating budgets or project plans, receiving and giving scientific criticism and dealing with interpersonal conflicts in the lab.

All workshops are highly interactive using ‘learning by doing’ and make extensive use of role-playing and team exercises. Learn more at
