In the modern society, communication among people has become a lot easier thanks to the constant development of new technologies and social media platforms. Despite that, there is a big communication gap between scientists and public and it is often unclear about what the day-to-day life of research really entails. Reasons can be attributed to:
- The lack of information about all the steps that lead to the publication of new research founding
- The unknown “behind the scenes” in the life of a researcher.
Methods&Strategies podcast, run in both Italian and English Languages, aims to enhance the cross interaction between researchers and public through podcast interviews. Scientists, PhD students and postdocs are invited to share with the listeners their own personal experiences as a researcher and clarify some basic points belonging to the scientific world: How to find a PhD? What is a scientific paper? How is being a scientist different that having a “standard” job? How do you find work outside the research field?
The main reasons why you should embark upon Methods&Strategies podcast project:
- Promote your own projects
- Look for new collaborations
- Demonstrate your communication skills
- Show up if you are looking for a new job position
- Connect with other people inside and outside research
- Use the interview to update your resume and social working profile
