Job perspectives in applied Plant Sciences

23rd-24th of August 2021 at Campus Alnarp and online

A networking event directed at MSc students, PhD students and postdocs within plant sciences organized in association with PlantLink .

The objectives

Make a clear focus on the transition between the academia and industry, the European job market, skills required to work in the private sector and expertise students and young researchers can bring into the companies.

You’re working in a Plant Sciences company? Get a chance to present and advertise your company (also by bringing information stands, leaflets etc.), to meet your potential future employees and to influence the direction of their career!

When ?

After a MSc summer course organized jointly by ELLS (Euro league for Life Sciences) and ESCAPAdE and will attract students from many European universities that are partners within these organizations, as well as local participants from universities in Greater Copenhagen.

We are hoping you can come and mingle with us, participate in discussions about choosing a future career path and to help us make the event a success!

Moreover, you can contribute with suggestions for projects for the students from the ESCAPAdE and ELLS course “Host Plant Resistance Breeding as a part of Integrated Pest Management” These projects will be mentored by PhD students and postdocs from the ELLS and ESCAPAdE associated universities around problems related to plant breeding and protection. The results of projects will be presented the morning before the JobFair, and awards for best project given out during the mingle at the end of the first day.

An hybrid event

We are hoping that the situation in August will allow us to meet in person in Alnarp, Sweden!

But we stage a hybrid event to attract also online participants. If necessary, we will go totally online.

To make networking convenient and efficient both at site and with participants online, an event app will be use.
