Zurich Life Science Day, 07.02.2023, Zurich (CH)

Dear Life Scientist,

It is time to navigate your career maze!

The Life Science Zürich Young Scientist Network (LSZYSN) invites you to the Zurich Life Science Day, on the 7th of February 2023 at Irchel Campus. This is a day-long career fair and networking event with the most talented life scientists and companies. 

Who are we?

The LSZYSN is a non-profit organization composed of PhD students and Post-Doctoral researchers from ETH and University Zurich. Our goal is to connect life scientists with their career opportunities beyond academia.

What is the Zurich Life Science Day?

Over the last 12 years, the ZLSD has grown into the largest job fair for life scientists in Switzerland, hosting more than 700 participants and 100 company representatives on site at the Irchel Campus of the University of Zurich. Due to the Covid-19 situation we went virtual the last 2 years and hosted over 2000 participants from all over the globe, who connected with company representatives over informal 1-1 meetings, and numerous chatting options. However, ZLSD is back on campus and you get to do all networking in person. The full program is available here: https://zurich-life-science-day-2023.b2match.io/components/23183

Advantages for you:

  • Hear from company employees how they landed their job and what they do on a daily basis.
  • Talk to company representatives at their booths
  • Find job offers on our job wall.
  • Engage in 1-on-1 meetings with company representatives (20 minutes).
  • Get your CV checked.
  • Get your CV picture taken after the event.

(Junior) Science Day «Brain-Hormones-Nutrients Interactions»

The (Junior) Science Day «Brain-Hormones-Nutrients Interactions» will take place in Lausanne, organized by Fanny Langlet (DSB) and Sophie Croizier (CIG). 

The event is aiming to bring together scientists from the Lemanic region who do research (and clinical work) on neuroendocrine systems. The day will be organized in different sessions, in which PhD candidates present their research work.
This is also a great opportunity to practice oral presentations and go through question/answer sessions.
