Horizons in Molecular Biology 2014 Starts on Monday
Explore the frontiers of molecular biology at the 11th Horizons in Molecular Biology symposium, from 15-18 September 2014, in Göttingen, Germany.
Talks by 20 scientists will let one experience the latest research in the life sciences. Among the speakers will be the two Nobel laureates Ada Yonath (the amazing ribosome) and Sir John Walker (ATP synthesis), the synthetic biology pioneer Jason Chin, Gero Miesenböck as one of the inventors of optogenetics, Ingo Potrykus, the inventor of Golden Rice and Jeff Lichtman, who gave scientists one of the most beautiful scientific techniques of the last decades, which is the brainbow.
At the event it is possible to discuss with the speakers on how to successfully choose and to apply for a first post doc position during the panel discussion. Network with speakers and interact with them and other participants at social events like the conference party and dinner.
Participants further have the chance to present their own research in a poster and to win a poster prize. Further one can apply for an Awarded Student Talk - if one gets selected, the organizers will cover all travel costs and the registration fee for Horizons.
Other career opportunities will bring the Career Fair on the first day of the symposium. Here participants can develop skills they need in future career - be it in academia, in industry, in journalism or in an own start-up.
