The meeting is intended to increase local networking among NDPIA members in Uppsala (UU/SLU/SLV/SVA) and to attract new NDPIA members, i.e. PhD students and postdocs focusing on infection and/or antibiotics. If the outcome is positive, similar NDPIA-activities will be organized at other universities.
In addition to information about NDPIA there will be a workshop that will help to identify your attributes and how to use these to fit a job description, key elements to be addressed in a job application, including CV and cover letter and how to prepare yourself and your presentation for the interview. The workshop will include group discussions and writing exercises.
Venue: Uppsala University, Biomedical Centre (C8:317)
Date and Time: Thursday, Feb 15th 2018, 13:00-16:00
Workshop leader: Showgy Ma’ayeh (PhD)

On 17-18 October, the National Infection Biology (NIB) Network held its seventh meeting, NIB 2017, at the Djurönäset Conference Hotel outside of Stockholm. The meeting was preceded by NDPIA workshops on science communication and career planning, held 16-17 October.
In line with the NIB network’s ambitions, the meeting provided opportunities for young researchers to present their research and to network with scientists from all the various fields of infection biology research. The NIB 2017 programme featured international keynote talks, selected talks from submitted abstracts and two poster sessions. Among a total of 47 posters submitted by NDPIA members, 10 were selected for short presentations during meeting.
