Career Skills Development

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

"Attending the career development workshops at The EMBO Meeting was very useful to me as I’m now at a changing point in my career. Talking to the speakers and facilitators made me aware of the possibilities, including ones outside of academia, that are available to me."
