The journey to choosing a career can be as exciting as it is daunting. With the event series “Beyond the Thesis”, we aim to offer exciting insights into various career paths to make this journey less daunting. This isn't your typical lecture series – it's an opportunity to engage in open dialogue with others who are or have been in your shoes. We provide a platform for role models to share their personal experiences, successes and challenges.

Beyond the Thesis: Fireside Chat – Female* Researchers Edition

Jointly hosted by IntCDC, SimTech and SFB-TRR 161, we invite master#s students, (post)doctoral researchers, and early career researchers from the University of Stuttgart and beyond to join us on 1 July 2024 at 4 pm at Café frei[raum] for an evening of enriching conversations and invaluable networking opportunities as you chart your course toward a fulfilling career. 

*If you identify as female, including cisgender women, lesbians, trans women, and non-binary individuals comfortable in a female-centered community, and are nearing the end of your studies or PhD journey, this event is designed for you.
