On 10 February 2023, Dr. Marina Psalti and Dr. Tobias Pamminger visited us in Mainz for our first GenEvo Alumni Talk .
After a brief introduction of their personal career steps and their experiences with securing DFG and Marie-Curie funding, they both talked about life as a researcher at the university and what made them decide to pursue a career in industry. They also talked a little bit about the application process for companies and what they found particularly challenging. Finally, we got a glimpse of what a normal working day looks like at their current workplaces.
Each presentation was followed by a 20-min dicussion where all GenEvos were able to ask questions. We hope to organise another Alumni talk soon!
