The Career Talkshow: My path after PhD

StrasAIR presents “The Career Talkshow: My path after PhD”. This event was created to give Ph. D. students a broader view of their career possibilities after their Ph. D. It will consist of a dynamic interview format with two young Ph. D. alumni from the University of Strasbourg. The interview will be based on their professional story, talking about how they were recruited for their current positions, and how they leveraged their Ph. D. diplomas to get their jobs, among related topics.

The interview will take 1h30, where the first hour will be dedicated to the interview/presentation and the last 30 minutes will be dedicated to a Q&A session with the attendees. This event is planned as the live webinar with Dr. Farouk Allouche (maître de conférences in Biotechnology at Université Catholique de Lille) and with Dr. Youssef Zaiter (economiste des ressources naturelles at ACTeon Environment) on 28th January at 18h30 until 20h.
