Call for applications to the “PIs of tomorrow: The Future of Swiss Research” – Deadline Oct. 15, 2023

The PIs of tomorrow session at the next LS2 Annual Meeting 2024 will be held in Lausanne, 14-15. February 2024

This session offers to postdocs interested in an academic career an opportunity to present a plenary talk similar in format to a professorship interview seminar. A knowledgeable jury panel of professors will evaluate the presentations.

The best presentation will be awarded a prize. However, everyone is a winner, as all presenters in the session will receive feedback from the jury in a one-on-one private session afterwards. Moreover, as a participant in the LS2 Annual Meeting 2024, you will have the opportunity to expand or refresh your network in Switzerland via interaction with scientists in and outside your field.

Only applicants having ties to Switzerland will be considered (i.e. Swiss citizenship, Swiss residency, past or on-going affiliation with a Swiss institution of at least two years by the 2024 meeting). Independent position holders are not eligible.
