An important part of The EMBO Meeting is career development for scientists, particularly PhD and postdocs facing the decision whether to pursue a career in academia or elsewhere.
The Career Day offers a number of career development workshops for young scientists - PhD students and postdocs. The skills developed in these sessions are essential for successful academic or science-related careers. These sessions are uniquely developed for scientists by scientists; all the trainers have a research background and work extensively with researchers in the life sciences.
Other Career development activities include networking with senior scientists at meet the speakers lunches and during the poster sessions
