Institute of Environmental Biology (IEB) PhD meeting

You are here

The Utrecht IEB PhD Council hereby invites you to a  lunch seminar on career perspectives for IEB PhD candidates. The seminar will consist of a free lunch, and two talks by both an academically employed and a non-academically employed graduate of the IEB. With this lunch seminar, we hope to aid current PhD candidates in planning their future careers. The seminar will take place on Friday October 5th at 12:30 till approximately 14:00 in room Oost128 in the Kruytbuilding (padualaan 8 in Utrecht).

Our two speakers, Dr. Pauline Krijgsheld and Dr. Bas Rutjes will informally present us their careers, their career choices and why they made these choices. Dr. Krijgsheld earned her PhD in 2013 at the Microbiology group here in Utrecht and has been working on a variety of projects as a post-doc since, often in collaborations with companies. Dr. Rutjens earned his PhD in 2007 at the molecular plant physiology group and moved to the UK and later to Wageningen for post-doc positions. Then, Dr. Rutjens left academicia and taught molecular breeding at applied university Inholland and recently started his own company Spark Genetics.

Free lunch will be provided but please inform us ASAP (iebphdcouncil@uu.nl) if you and/or other will attend, so we can order a sufficient amount of lunch. 

We encourage you to bring any experienced Masters students who may benefit from such a seminar. Include them in the RSVP so we order sufficient lunch.

Lastly, to prevent any confusion, this meeting is replacing the now cancelled GSLS PhD event originally planned on the same time and date in the UMCU.

Kind regards,
Freek, Gilles, Valérie, Tom, Zhilei and Laura
