Junior scientists make an important contribution at gaining scientific and social insight and knowledge. At the same time, the predictability of an academic career becomes more and more difficult and the uncertainty in the course of a scientific career continues to grow. The 'IMPRS Symposium for Alumni + Early Career Researchers' aims to show diverse career options within and outside science and to discuss different strategies for successful networking and communication by bringing together our alumni, current IMPRS PhD candidates and external experts.

The IMPRS for Organismal Biology started in 2009 and now has close to 60 alumni working in various areas. Our current IMPRS PhD candidates can benefit from the personal experiences of the IMPRS alumni at the symposium and build up or expand their professional network through direct contacts. External speakers will present offers within the MPG as well as strategies and opportunities to plan and promote one's own career.

The 'IMPRS Symposium for Alumni + Early Career Researchers' combines keynote lectures with workshops on career options within and outside academia as well as on networking on communication offered by our IMPRS alumni as well as external professionals.

Thanks to the finanical support from the Max Planck Society, we are able to invite all participants and offer a financial contribution to the traveling costs. For registration please contact Mäggi.
