Virtual Career Development Event for Postdocs

This event is for SymbNET’s postdoc network, but it is also open to the entire research community of SymbNET.

Registration is mandatory.

To map a career and plan career moves, we must consider where to start, what to prepare, and how to think about the options ahead.

Alongside the theory of how to build a professional profile, start the job-finding process and make decisions about the future, we will hear from three experts on academic research, science training and education, and science communication about their own experience: the career steps they have taken, the challenges faced, and the advice they have for anyone wishing to follow a similar career path.
