We received the following message from the ÖPG:
We invite you to register for the 2nd Women-in-Physics Career Symposium that will take place as a satellite event to the joint annual meeting of the Swiss Physical Society (SPS) and the Austrian Physical Society (ÖPG) in Basel from the 4th to the 8th September 2023: *Link*
The goal of the 2nd symposium is to continue to boost women in the early career stage from undergraduate to postdoctoral studies. Like last year, the event will feature a series of career talks, which will provide information on navigating a career in physics from the personal perspective of invited speakers covering several career levels. This year, speakers pursuing successful careers both in and outside academia will provide us with insights about key moments of their careers. The career talks will be complemented by a podium discussion, in which participants can ask questions and share experiences, advice, and ideas. Ample opportunities for networking, exchange of experiences and ideas will be additionally provided via extended coffee breaks, lunch, and a dinner.
Although, the event is focused on connecting mentees from the undergraduate up to postdoctoral career level with experienced mentors, we invite female participants from all career levels to register for this event to contribute and benefit from the networking.
Mentees are female physicists who are on the level of Bachelor, Master, PhD or Postdoc. Through the mentoring network they will be able to meet with their associated mentor at least four times to discuss questions concerning their career. At the event mentors and mentees will be matched. At this event, 20 spots for mentees are available. Selected mentees will also receive a small travel stipend to facilitate their travel to Basel. The travel stipend is kindly sponsored by Zurich Instruments. Details on how to apply to become a mentee can be found on the webpage. A growing list of mentors is provided here.
We are looking forward to seeing you at the symposium in Basel!
Dealines: 30. Juni if you apply for the für Mentee-programm, otherwise 15. August. Registration for the mentroing programm: *Link*
