Career Seminars

Career Seminars

With the "Career Seminar" we want to give you more insight into the diversity of career choices avaiable for scientists holding a doctoral degree. We invite young, senior or former scientists from various fields outside the academic research to speak about their jobs and the opportunities offered to people with a scientific background.

After the presentations the audience has the opportunity to discuss with the speakers in an informal atmosphere. While enjoying a snack and drinks they can get a personal impression of the speaker and their company. Saskia, Jennifer, Bela, Timo, Heema and Dragomir are organizing the Career Seminars in 2013.

Everyone is welcome to suggest companies or speakers!!!
Please send an e-mail to Timo, BelaDragomir, Jennifer, Heema, or Saskia.
