The Agrotecnio CERCA Center, in collaboration with the University of Lleida (UdL), is organising the second “Early Career Researchers’ Forum”. It will take place the 24th November at 12.00 p.m. in the ETSEA Campus (Sala de Graus, Building 1). In this occasion, the event will be about “Careers beyond Academia”. Three external guests will share their experiences on the importance of doing a PhD and the different career opportunities it offers beyond Academia:

  • Javier Bertrán, PhD in Plant Breeding and former ETSEA (UdL) student, will talk about his experience in the public and private sector in entities such as Texas A&M University, Syngenta or Bayer Crop Science.
  • Mónica Elía, PhD in Biotechnology by the UdL, will give an overview of her career as a researcher at IRTA and Innopan, up to her current position as a science teacher in a high school.
  • José Luis García, research professor at Margarita Salas Center for Biological Research (CIB-CSIC), will talk about his entrepreneurial side. He has founded three companies dedicated to genome analysis, genetic diagnosis and microorganism bioprospecting.

As always, we will have a discussion time to ask questions and share concerns with those present. Finally, there will be a beer tasting sponsored by Maltería La Moravia, Grupo Damm. This tasting will be led by Neus Prieto, student of Industrial Doctorate at the University of Lleida and Maltería La Moravia.
