2019 MPIPZ Alumni Career Day
Are you a plant scientist and asking yourself WHAT'S NEXT?
Come to the 2019 Alumni Career Day and see how former MPIPZ PhD students and postdocs have addressed this question.
Our twelve confirmed alumni panelists have taken careers in academia, industry and other areas. In three separate panel discussions, they will share how they have experienced the transition and their new positions.
You will have the chance to meet selected panelists in the afternoon get-connected sessions. Use this opportunity to address individual questions in small groups and discuss them with the invited speakers and your peers.
The Alumni Career Day will be opened by Sarah Blackford, an internationally recognized and experienced career consultant from biosciencecareers.org. Sarah will tell you how to self-assess suitable career options and prime you for the day.
Representatives from max-planck-innovation.de will introduce how technology transfer and start-ups are supported inside the Max Planck Society and beyond.
The day will be rounded off by a poster session on funding oportunities while having lunch and a joint dinner with all participants and invited speakers.
The event is open to everyone at and associated with the MPIPZ and the CEPLAS and IMPRS programme. Registration is open until November 25th.
We are looking forward to seeing you there,
The Organising Committee
