The subject of discussion will be on scientific confidence, and we will be hosting Eva Bojner Horwitz, Cecilia Stenfors and Walter Osika from the Department of Public Health at Uppsala University and the Stress Research Institute at Stockholm University. They will open the session with a presentation of their study on how to deal with writer’s block, which will be followed by a discussion on the questions listed below.

The meeting will take place in the student union building in Solna on May 27 at 6 p.m. If you are interested in participating, please email Ranjita.Dutta-Roy@ki.se.

Scientific confidence: an important factor for staying alive in research?

As PhD students we spend our days and nights scratching our heads over which statistical tests to choose, fighting with our annealing temperatures, cursing non-responding cells or staring at shining bright Matlab error messages. Many times it can be so frustrating that we just feel like giving up at the end of the day thinking that we are just not made for science. The degree to which we are affected obviously depends on our personalities, but how does one keep up the scientific confidence in general in order to perform on top of one’s ability?

  1. Have you ever suffered from low scientific confidence? How did you fight your way through?
  2. How can your supervisor and your colleagues be helpful in increasing your scientific confidence and how do we ‘’detect’’ low scientific confidence?
  3. Is there a gender bias when it comes to scientific confidence and self-critical thinking?
  4. Does social life have an impact on scientific confidence? How can the university/DSA help?
