Career Day

Career Day

Organised by EICAT (PhD and Postdoctoral Programmes) together with EMBLEM, Career Day provides an overview of alternative, non-academic career possibilities for scientists from all EMBL sites and the local scientific community.

Career Day 2014 will take place on Thursday, 17 July 2014.

The theme of this year's event is dual career couples. The Career Day features a programme of speakers from a broad spectrum of disciplines, covering research in industry, project management and science policy. The speakers will talk about their career choices, and explain how they made the leap into another field as well as give a personal insight into their day-to-day working life. In addition to the talks, small group sessions over lunch will allow interested attendees to discuss further details directly with the speakers.

Registration

Career Day is free of charge but registration is required. Please register here.
