Seminar Series: Careers for PhDs

Coming Next:

With the "Careers for PhDs" Seminar Series the graduate program is trying to give the graduate students more insights in the diversity of jobs that can be occupied by scientists holding a doctoral degree.

To that aim, we invite young, senior or former scientists from inside or various fields outside of academic research to speak about their jobs and the opportunities offered to people with a scientific background. These talks take place about every month. After the presentations the audience is offered to discuss with the speakers in a more familiar ambience. While enjoying "beer and brez’n" they can get a personal impression of the speaker and get in touch with them and their company/institution.

Scarlet Beck, Beatrice Laudenbach, and Anna Gebhard are organizing the Careers for PhDs Seminar Series in 2015.

Everyone is welcome to suggest companies or speakers!! To do so just mail to one of us.
