Introduction in Scientific Writing
This two-day workshop enables life scientists to to write clearly and with impact! The participants learn how to construct a “take-home” message that tells the story of their research, choose words that communicate their science clearly, and structure their paper into a flowing narrative.Participants receive a printed manual guiding them through all levels of scientific writing from the fundamentals of word choice to the overall structure of the paper.  Integration of research articles selected by participants tailors workshop activities to their specific interests and fields of research.  Instructor is a native English-speaking scientist with over 15 years of scientific writing, editing and publishing experience in high-ranking scientific journals.  Participants receive detailed individual feedback on their own writing from the trainer.Dr Brian Cusack comes from Cork, Ireland and received his Ph.D. in Genetics from Trinity College, Dublin in 2007.During his Ph.D. Brian received the kind of mentoring that he continues to consider as the gold-standard for graduate students. After completing his first postdoc at the Ecole Normale Supérieure in Paris, Brian conducted post-doctoral research in evolutionary genomics at the Max-Planck Institute for Molecular Genetics in Berlin.In February 2012, together with Rick Scavetta, Brian co-founded Science Craft in Berlin. Since then Brian has provided high-level training workshops for more than a thousand researchers throughout Germany as well as in Norway and China.
