Women's Career Day

3 June 2020, online via Zoom

This year's Women's Career Day for doctoral candidates and postdocs takes place on 3 June 2020.

In two tailor-made workshops you are invited to develop and strengthen key skills that will be very useful for your present and future professional career, be that within academia or in business and industry. The trainers are carefully selected experts with many years of experience in teaching scientists. The workshops run parallel from 9 a.m.- 5 p.m. and are reserved for female researchers from the research fields of Universität Hamburg's MIN faculty, DESY and associated research centers.

In a keynote talk, Zehra Sayers, Professor of Biophysics at Sabanci University and currently visiting Scientist at EMBL Hamburg will be giving a talk on science diplomacy followed by an open discussion. She will demonstrate how scientists reach across borders and work together for a common goal: SESAME, a collaborative synchrotron facility for advanced research in the Middle East.
