We organize and promote lecture series, workshops and career events to support students and postdoctoral fellows with building their careers. In collaboration with our Berlin-based partners, we aim to provide career-building support to cultivate the interest of young scientists in areas beyond academia. 

Planned Career Days:

This event will help you gain practical skills - such as Interviewing/Negotiating and Story Telling - and to prepare a CV for a job in or out of Academia!

The event is aimed at life scientists at all stages who are interested in career development.

The Career Preparation Day will take place on Saturday, October 8th at betahaus Kreuzberg (Address: Rudi-Dutschke-Straße 23, 10969 Berlin) from 9:45 am until 7 pm.

At the event you will have a chance to:

  • Hear an inspiring keynote talk: "You have only one life - plan your career without replicates"
  • Participate in two workshops (one in the morning and one in the afternoon) to learn new skills and reflect on your career planning
  • Get practical tips on how to prepare your CV and find a job
