Networking Round Tables

Venue: Axon 2

Scientists and professionals with a range of different career paths both in and outside academia will tell you about their current role and give some tips on getting a job in a similar setting.  These sessions are organized as round table discussions with one speaker leading the discussion at each table.
Each participant can register for one or more sessions (with different speakers), whose career roles/pathways are of most interest.

Registration for these round tables is mandatory.
