Everything you don´t learn in the lab
Soft skills for scientists
Science communication, career development and (self-) management
NaturalScience.Careers offers workshops and talks for natural- and life scientists since 2012. We specialise in soft skills topics. In other words, we cover all the wonderful things you don´t learn in the lab but make you more effective and employable. We are a team of nine trainers, all with a science background (MSc-, PhD- or even Prof- level). We offer our services to PhD students, postdocs and group leaders worldwide.
Our workshops and talks for scientists: As online- and in-house events - worldwide
Politics, society, science: Make an impact
In this workshop, we’ll work on how you, as a scientist, can make an impact on society and the public debate.
PhD, and next?
So, you finally have a science degree- or will in the future. What to do with it? Are all doors open to you or is there still a lot of work to be done?
Storytelling for scientists
We all enjoy a good story, whether it’s during a presentation, a job interview, a conference coffee break, or simply during a pub night. Why? It activates the same areas of our brain that would be activated during the actual event.
Dr. Karin Bodewits and Dr. Philipp Gramlich
Scientific background with teaching and facilitation experiences
Together, we bring experiences from a wide range of STEM fields to the table: chemistry, biology, physics, medicine, computer science, and mathematics. Having the same background as our course participants makes our workshops and talks very relatable and relevant to the professional lives of scientists.
Online- und in-house Talks for scientists
Sleeping beauty, the prince doesn’t come! About self-marketing and networking
Playing a waiting game does not help career progress. Still, many scientists hope victory and fame come naturally by producing scientifically solid work. But success usually takes more.
Harvard Negotiation Principles
Let´s explore how the Harvard Negotiation Principles can help us become better negotiators. Is negotiation ‘cheap’, as in haggling at a flea market? Is it appropriate when discussing important things like contracts?
Graduated and now? – A look at career options
You have just finished your science degree or will do so in the near future? What could come next and how to prepare for this big step in your career?
Books and articles for the career development of scientists
Our articles and books cover a range of topics relevant to the career development of scientists: career options, skill development and science communication, to name just a few. We exclusively write for high-quality publications like Science Careers, Naturejobs, Chemistry World or Nachrichten aus der Chemie.
Karin Bodewits – Career Fables (Science Careers)
Karin regularly writes the series ‘Career Fables’ for Science Careers. In these stories, a fictional story close to typical real-life experiences of scientists is used to introduce relevant and thought-provoking ideas.
