Preparing and defining a career plan is a tremendously challenging task for young scientists. In the last few decades, investment by the Government has allowed Life Sciences and Biomedicine students to pursue a PhD in our country, but after graduation many face a future of uncertainty. It is becoming increasingly difficult for Portugal to absorb the highly-qualified professionals that are formed every year by our Universities.
The symposium "Overcoming Challenges in Scientific Careers", the Biomedical Research Post-Doctoral Forum@UC aims at creating an opportunity for PhD holders and PhD students to reflect on their career paths and make informed choices, by contacting and hearing from people of diverse scientific backgrounds.
The symposium is organized by the post-doctoral representatives of CNC.IBILI and it counts with an excellent panel of speakers, that includes University professors, entrepreneurs, pharmaceutical industry workers and science communication agents. The ensuing discussion will hopefully bear fruitful insights for everyone interested in making the most out of their scientific education.
