The Junior Scientist & Industry annual meeting (JSIam) is a day-long networking event that gives junior scientists (PhD and post-doc candidates) the opportunity to meet professionals from industrial companies, consulting firms, and startups.

Junior scientists can explore career opportunities outside government research institutions and find the tools and information they need to prepare. The day also represents a valuable networking opportunity. For participating businesses, the day offers a chance to identify up-and-coming talent and keep abreast of the latest research coming out of GIANT campus laboratories.

The JSIam is held annually in February/March, in English. It is organized by the GIANT Junior Ambassadors, the team of PhD students responsible for building and sustaining the on-campus PhD student community.

More information on the next JSIam, is coming here.
