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
Job application and interview strategies for scientists: how to score your dream job from application all the way to salary negotiation
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
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.
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.
