DPZ Science Career Day 2023

Save as calendar entry

Ready for the Future?

Calling all Early Career Scientists

# Inspiring Talks
# Career perspectives
# Networking session with drinks and snacks

The Career Day is a great opportunity for Bachelor, Master and PhD students as well as for early stage PostDocs to get an idea about possible career perspectives at first hand. We invited fantastic speakers from various fields - mostly DPZ alumni - that will present their career path and their everyday work. They will discuss personal insights on e.g. work-life balance, hurdles and pitfalls, requirements and gains. They will share their experience on "How important is a doctorate for career development?", "What does it mean to lead your own research group?" and "What requirements do I need for a job in and outside academia?".


2 pm: Talks and Discussions in the DPZ lecture hall
4 pm: Networking Session with Drinks and Pizza
