Detailed information about this course:

Description

These days doing research is a career. With this career comes an environment with incentives, pressures and temptations that may undermine the scientific quality of the work. How do you keep doing what is right when that may harm your career (at the very least at short notice)? We look at the history of science as a career choice. We will discuss what science is, and we will discuss some of the reasons researchers experience pressure to do less well than they intended. We will do this with the help of the movie 'On being a scientist'.

Objectives

Reflection on science as a career and on the advancement of scientific integrity
