GGL Career Day 2018

GGL Career Day Anouncement
Please save the date for our upcoming annual GGL Career Day, that will take place at the JLU University Main Building in the Aula, Ludwigstrasse 23, 35390 Giessen on the 15th February 2018.

Your life as a young researcher is filled with practical laboratory work, field studies or statistics. As much as this is a central element of your path to a doctoral degree now, you might later switch to more administrative and organisational jobs, where you will spend less time at the “bench” and more on the "desk”.

This year’s GGL Career Day will especially focus on these future positions offered in industry, academia and public services.

Please register online until 12 February

"From Bench to Desk"

The shift from lab to office demands not just a change in perspective but also requires you to apply your scientific knowledge in a different way.

Our programme will feature talks of experts, sharing their knowledge and experiences in their respective fields of work and the possibility to have your CVs checked in English and German. To keep your spirits up, refreshments and snacks will be offered in the lunch break.


For GGL members: The Career Day is part of the Doctoral Development Programme (DDP). Attending will be credited.
