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. The 2015 Career day will focus on a series of speakers who have successfully navigated the transition between academia and industry (and vice versa). 

Career Day 2015 will take place on Thursday, 9 July 2015 from 10:00-16:30 at the Advance Training Center of the EMBL in Heidelberg, Germany. The event is free of charge but registration is required.
