Life Sciences PostDoc Day was founded six years ago to promote interactions among postdoctoral researchers and senior Ph.D. students of the ETH domains and to provide career-related advice and support.
This year, for the first time, the Life Sciences PostDoc Day is co-organized by senior Ph.D. students and postdocs from ETH Zurich, University of Zurich, and University Hospital Zurich with the aim of stimulating scientific collaborations across all Zurich research institutions. We also encourage postdocs and senior Ph.D. students from other Swiss universities to join us! This is an exciting event to see what your colleagues are doing and initiate collaborations that can push your research further!
Why you should attend
You will have a golden opportunity to practice your presentation skills by presenting your current research in an oral and/or poster presentation. Prizes to be awarded to the most inspiring!
We are offering this year NEW career workshops:
- Academic career mentoring
- Transitioning from academia into industry
- Making your idea into a start up
- Research culture
There will be many networking opportunities:
- Poster session
- Shared interest lunch groups
- Networking apero
For more details (i.e. descriptions of workshops and lunch groups topics), please look at the Agenda.
ABOUT THE POSTDOC DAY SPEAKERS
Christine Vogel (New York University)
Prof. Christine Vogel’s laboratory uses quantitative mass spectrometry, computational, and targeted experimental biology to investigate the regulation of protein expression in different bacterial and eukaryotic systems in response to environmental stress. She completed her Ph.D. in Computational and Structural Biology at MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology with Dr Cyrus Chothia and Dr Sarah A. Teichmann. Before becoming faculty at New York University in 2011, Dr. Vogel was a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Texas at Austin with Prof. Edward Marcotte.
Emily Jones (Nature Communications)
Dr. Jones did her Ph.D. in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at the University of Arizona. She was a postdoctoral researcher at Washington State University, Fellow of the College for Life Sciences at the Wissenschaftskolleg zu Berlin, and a Huxley Faculty fellow at Rice University studying species interactions in a community context before joining Nature
