Cordial Invitation!

AMC Summer Reception for Early Career Researchers

Thursday, 6 June 2019, 4.45 p.m. - 8.00 p.m.

Neues Seminargebäude & Backside of Hörsaalgebäude

Dear doctoral candidates and postdocs,

We cordially invite you to our AMC Summer Reception with an exciting and interactive programme on our topic "When Science meets Family", interdisciplinary networking, intercultural exchange, food and drinks (separate registration for the BBQ only is possible).

Whether you already have children, are considering having a family, or are still far away from these considerations, this moderated exchange gives you the opportunity to explore different aspects and challenges that arise in the interplay of a career in science and family life. Take the opportunity to exchange very different perspectives from your research fellows and to reflect on individual aspects and priorities.

We look forward to welcoming you! Partners and children are very welcome.
