PCB and IRB Barcelona host the «Career progression in science» event

The Barcelona Science Park (PCB) and the IRB Barcelona are holding the «Career progression in science – options beyond the bench» event on June 9th. The session, which aims to give participants inspiration and insight into their career development, will be held from 9.15 am to 12 noon in the Antoni Caparrós Auditorium (Baldiri Reixac, 4).

Many scientists follow a career in research without considering alternatives. This course of action often ends up being unsatisfactory, as it leads them to take up unsuitable jobs or to abandon science altogether. This session will provide researchers at any point in their careers with the opportuniy to look beyond the bench and to discover new and exciting career options.

The invited speakers for this event are science professionals who have pursued diverse careers, including work in university laboratories, research management, technology transfer, communications, R+D entrepreneurship and private business. The professionals that will be giving the lectures are: Susanna Baqué, Director Support & Market Development – EMEA at AB SCIEX; Antoni Párraga, Knowledge Management and Modelling Director of Esteve; Paula García, Scientific Project Manager d’Aromics; Johanna K. Scheper, R&D Project Manager at CIBER-BBN; Xavier Rubies, Head of Technology Transfer in the CRG, i Sarah Sherwood, Head of Communications and External Relations at IRB Barcelona.

The session is structured in two parts. The first part runs from 9.30 am to 10.45 am and speakers will offer a brief overview of their career path, explaining what they do and what led them to choose this direction. Running from 10.45 am to 12 noon, the second part will offer a more informal environment in which a mid-morning snack will be served and each speaker will respond personally to any questions participants may have.

Admission is free, but due to limited capacity advanced, booking is required.
