CanCell Young Scientists has the pleasure to invite you to Alumni Day, an event where you can come and find out about opportunities outside of academia. With only 3% of PhDs that obtain professor positions, it is high time to discuss attractive possibilities away from this institute and the university. We have invited a selection of scientists who will be able to answer your questions concerning how they got to where they are, with a focus on the transition process. Some of the participants have outlined two challenges they encountered when moving away from academia, which we hope will trigger some questions from you.

Read the participants’ biographies carefully and come prepared for this event! Half of the event is based on Q & A, and this will only be successful if the audience participates. We hope you are able to make the best of this opportunity!
