GRK1172 launches a Career-Training for PhD students

August 2010

On August 2, 2010 the first presentation on „Professional Orientation for Postgraduates“ took place in the Georg Speyer House“.
Within the scope of the research training group Barbara Hoffbauer from company Kepos pointed out the numerous assignment possibilities of life scientists. Besides academic and industrial research, she went into detail with job descriptions for which scientific studies are required even if scientific problems do not have to be dealt with every day.
The participants took advantage of the opportunity of engaging in their personal profile and learnt to adjust their written application as well as their oral presentation to the requirements of different jobs.
The offer of professional orientation is continued on October 8, 2010 with practical work on application documents and exercises for the interview.
