Life Sciences PostDoc Day was founded seven years ago to promote interactions among postdoctoral researchers and senior Ph.D. students of the ETH domains and to provide career-related advice and support.
This year - for the second time - the Life Sciences PostDoc Day is co-organized by senior Ph.D. students and postdocs from University of Zurich, University Hospital Zurich and ETH Zurich, with the aim of stimulating scientific collaborations across all Zurich research institutions. We also encourage early career researchers from other Swiss and international facilities to join us! This is an exciting event to see what your colleagues are doing and initiate collaborations that can push your research further.
