Conveying a clear research message in grant applications, publications and job / grant panel interviews is an invaluable skill for a successful scientific career. In this workshop you will learn how to decompose your research into a few key ideas, which can form the basis of clear and well-structured scientific communication in a variety of formats.
About the trainer: Chapin Rodriguez has been a freelance trainer and consultant in scientific communication since 2008. He works with individuals and institutions primarily in Europe and China to improve scientists’ ability to deliver effective oral presentations, design high-quality research and write clear manuscripts for submission to respected journals.
Chapin’s scientific background includes a PhD in biochemistry and structural biology from the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology / Cambridge University (2002), which resulted in 5 publications. He then carried out postdoctoral research in neuroscience at the Harvard Institutes of Medicine. He has won competitive research funding from the British Marshall Foundation and HHMI. Before concentrating on his science communication consultancy, Chapin ran a U.S.-Europe exchange programme for undergraduate chemistry students, for which he wrote a successful grant application (US $400,000) to the US National Science foundation.
Chapin has been offering workshops with EMBO on science communication since 2012.
