1.  Scope

The 1st Career Network Event of the IMPRS-gBGC is a unique opportunity to bring together former and current PhD researchers of the IMPRS-gBGC. We will invite you to meet and develop lasting collaborations, an important aspect for a competitive research profile and helpful for a career outside academia.

Young researchers, in particular those who are about to finish their PhD project can get inspired by the diverse career paths of our alumni and learn from their experience. Alumni from all over the world will join us in the Harnack House and answer questions like "Which skills are considered helpful in academia or science but also in industry or public service?" and "How to balance work and life, family and science?".

The event will take place before the 25th anniversary of the MPI-BGC starting on June 1-4 in Jena.
