Exit to the right: Is academia losing its talents?

Annual Event 2023 of the PostDoc Office

17:00 - 19:30
Anmeldung bis 27.04.2023, 12:00

Postdoctoral researchers are productive, innovative and a key factor for the research output of universities. This notwithstanding, their living and working conditions are often described as precarious. Rather than pursuing a career within academia, many researchers (have to) decide to bring their talents to the non-university sector. The PostDoc Office Annual Event explores how an environment can be created in which researchers can thrive and do their best work. Presentations and discussions will bring in perspectives from academics, career coaching professionals, university leadership, activism for better working conditions, and industry best practices. There will be space for an open exchange, and the members of the 2022/23 PostDoc Peer Mentoring Team will be honored and presented with certificates. Food & drinks will be provided throughout. Register until April 27, 2023, via postdoc(at)uni-graz.at.
