Theme 2023: Diversity in life science jobs, endless!

Jobs in the life sciences are very diverse, and to choose the right one, consider four questions: What do I like to do? 2. which areas interest me? 3. how do I like to work (company culture) 4. Whose values/aspects/dreams/challenges do I value and whose are I willing to give up or negotiate? What drives me really? The 2023 program is built to help you answer these four questions, so book this day, to follow us from A to Z! Renowned companiesrecruiters and speakers are looking forward to meeting you in person during the networking sessions!

The program is published here.

Registration: from April 3 / free of charge.

Symposium on Mobility in Research: funds, career & advice. 10.11.2022

The mobility of researchers, beginners or advanced, promotes training and research experiences. It fosters the development of scientific collaborations leading to the sharing of knowledge, the construction of inter-individual and inter-organizational relationships, and access to specific infrastructures and equipment. The exchanges allow both people and institutions to establish new associations which expand their international network.

Mobility programs in the fields of research and innovation are numerous and complementary. It is therefore appropriate for researchers to make the right choices at the right time by integrating their current professional and private needs.

What mobility funding tools are available?
Is mobility a necessary criterion for obtaining certain research funds?
What is the impact of international experience on professional career?
This advice can be given to researchers motivated by a move abroad?

Unisanté’s research support sector invites you to discuss with researchers with mobility experience on these themes during its annual research symposium. We look forward to welcoming many of you there.
