Local NDPIA network meeting/workshop “Preparing for the next step” in Uppsala 180215

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.
