Your life as a young researcher is filled with practical laboratory work, field studies, statistics or medical procedures. As much as this is a central element of the path leading up to a doctoral degree now, many of you will later switch to more administrative and organisational jobs, where you will spend less time at the bench and more on the desk. Such transitions from lab to office demand not just a change in perspective but also require you to apply your scientific knowledge and skills in a different way.
Our 9th GGL career day "From bench to desk" will especially focus on these follow up positions, that industry, academia and public services offer to fresh graduates of the Life Sciences.
As every year we invite several speakers from different sectors to share their experience, present different job profiles and answer your questions.
Since the career day is part of our Doctoral Development Programme (DDP), GGL-Members receive credits for the attendance of the event. To keep your spirits up, we will offer refreshments and little snacks in the lunch break.
If you wish to attend, please register online until 12 February:
