Working in Photonics in Berlin 2019

Our annual event “Working in Photonics”, aims to provide a platform where companies/research institutes and physics students/recent graduates can meet, exchange information and connect.

The event consists of three parts: We will start with a guided tour with Wista at 14:00, followed by short talks by research institutes and companies at 15:00, and then will have an informal “Meet-the-Expert” session with time for questions and discussions in smaller groups from 17:40 onwards. The students will be able to talk to you -the experts- about possible career paths, about your job, your company etc. At the same time, you can talk to potential job applicants and get them interested in your work.

Registration is free and now open:

17:40 – 19:00 Networking Session / “Meet the Experts”

If you would like to represent your company/institute with a talk or a poster/booth, please contact us.

To provide a balanced representation and better address female students during this event, we highly encourage company/institute representation by female speakers.

Sample presentation (10 minutes, ca. 5 slides in total):

1. Company/institute (e.g. 2 slides)

2. About the speaker (e.g. 2 slides: career path, current job description)

3. Jobs for physicists and open positions in the company/institute (e.g. 1 slides)

The talks and job descriptions should be aimed at recent and prospective graduates in the field of physics.
