On Wednesday, 16.03.2016 from 14:00 to 18:00 at the caesar research center, Bonn, we had our 2nd Career Talks organized by the BIGS Neuroscience and Neuroscience Master student council at the Bonn Brain³ Meeting. Instead of listening to hour-long monologues, we discussed the possibilities for our future with international representatives from these fields:
Academic Teaching: Geert Ramakers – Utrecht University
Pharmaceutical Industry: Isabelle Niespodziany – UCB Pharma S.A.
Government: Marlies Dorlöchter – DLR Project Management Agency – Health Research
Start-ups: Peter Haug – Founding Angels
Scientific Journalism & Filmmaking: Pia Grzesiak – Grzesiak Films
We need to thank
- our two moderator, Max and Steffi, who did a great job in guiding us through the relevant topics and questions
- our speakers, who answered all our questions patiently and honestly. They gave us valuable insights into the possible career paths
- the audience, who contributed to the great success by asking a lot of important questions
Hopefully, we helped most of them in finding some answers for their questions!
We are looking forward to next years Career Talks!
Together with the IMPRS for brain and behavior applicants, we had a small pub crawl through Bonn on March 15th. Nice people, good conversations and of course some drinks and food made it an awesome evening!
