Career Night
Sunday, June 19

The Metabolomics Society is excited to announce our second Career Night at the 18th International Conference in Valencia. This dynamic event will feature representatives from all employment sectors who want to engage with job seekers. 

Career Night will include a job fair for participants to learn about available positions and interact in a relaxed setting with potential employers. One-on-one interviews between employers and candidates may also be conducted during the conference. The job fair will also be hosting a "mentoring and tips" table that will provide attendees with career focused practical advice from experienced researches.

This roundtable event will feature dicussants covering topics such as:

  • Career transitions

  • Careers in Academia
  • Careers in Industry
  • Obtaining a postdoctoral fellowship
