This Event has been already started.
To kick this academic year off, we are delighted to announce our first event "Not Just Another Careers Event!" which will be held Thursday, November 26th at 7pm. In line with public health guidelines, this event will be held virtually via Zoom. The focus of this event is to inform late stage undergraduate and postgraduate students from a Science background of the divergent career paths possible following a degree in Science! Hear from a number of UCD alumni such as ELISA Genie Co-Founder and CFO, Dr Seán MacFhearraigh, and Research Manager at the Irish Cancer Society, Dr Claire Kilty about their career paths to date and discover how a degree in Science led them to where they are now. On the night, we will also be joined online by over 20 further speakers for small group Q&A sessions to speak about their decisions, experiences and recommendations, based on their own experiences. These speakers include post-doctoral fellows pursuing a career in the field of academic based research, scientists working on the frontline of COVID-19 sample testing and research as well as journal specialists to mention a few. There is certainly no shortage of inspiration with this bunch! Registration for this event is via the Eventbrite link provided!
