Mental health in science careers: well-being of young researchers

Desiree Dickerson is a clinical psychologist who specialises in the mental health and well-being of researchers and the academic community. Having worked as a researcher in New Zealand, Australia and Austria, Desiree now works globally with universities, lab groups, and academics in the pursuit of a healthier approach to research.

The challenges and struggles PhD students and young researchers experience during the different stages of their journey take a considerable toll on both mental health and general well-being. With its constant rollercoaster of emotions, a PhD is challenging at the best of times, let alone during a global pandemic. That is why, in this year´s Nikolaus lecture, we took the opportunity to raise awareness about the psychological strain of undertaking research and the coping mechanisms to ensure well-being during our journey.
