Quinta-feira 18 Junho

À conversa com... dois investigadores e alumni U.Porto: Pedro Resende (i3S/Chaperone) e Nuno Camboa (Goethe University Frankfurt), sobre "Carreira científica", com moderação de Paula Lopez Perez (Career Development Coordinator i3S)

Muitos jovens que estão a terminar as suas licenciaturas e mestrados têm questionado a importância de realizarem um Doutoramento e de prosseguirem uma carreira científica. Neste webinar convidamos três investigadores que além de partilharem os seus percursos profissionais irão abordar a questão das competências pessoais, sociais e profissionais que se desenvolvem ao enveredarmos por um Doutoramento e por uma carreira científica (dentro ou fora da Academia).
