We are proud to invite you to the 2nd session of this season on EMBO Long-Term Fellowships to which we are extremely grateful to welcome 2 postdocs who recently successfully obtained these fundings: Inês Barbosa and Anaxi Houbaert (Department of Plant Molecular Biology, FBM).
After a very successful first round (thanks to all of you!!), the second round for those who are interested will take place on Tuesday 12th, from 17:00 onwards at the Perchoir (the Vortex bar at UNIL).
-It takes place in a bar, so don’t forget your covid certificate
-Feel free to bring along anyone you like -You’ll likely enjoy the session more if you know the basics of the language you want to practice (e.g. a Duolingo skill tree’s worth, but it’s by no means mandatory as long as you don’t actually start from scratch)
If you want to subscribe or get someone to subscribe to the event (so you can have all the information by mail), have them send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org (note the hyphen and the plus) or scan the QR code.
We hope you all had a nice summer and have started full of excitement into GRANT SEASON !
To support you with your ongoing/planned/hoped/even-if-still-distant funding applications, we would like to invite you to our 2021/22 Fall/Winter series of
POSTDOC FUNDING CHATS
If you’re looking to apply for a postdoc fellowship or independent grant, you’re having difficulties navigating the jungle of possibilities, or you’re looking for someone to exchange experiences with, this is your chance!
We would like to invite you all to join on ZOOM (the link is at the end of this news ^^). In these virtual chats, you will have the opportunity to hear former or current postdocs share their unique experience and tips & tricks obtaining specific funding. After their talks, you can ask all and any questions you may have in an informal chat round.
The objective of this workshop is not only to raise awareness on the issue of gender bias, but also to foster active discussion about concrete solutions that are currently, or could potentially be, implemented at individual and institutional levels.
