Career Day

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

Career Day 2017 will take place on 20 July, 9:30-16:30 and has the theme "influence". It will feature roles in which non-academic scientists can influence the future of science, whether that be through science policy, science communication, supporting the next generation of scientists, or steering innovation in industry. The final programme and further details will be announced in early May.
