Life Sciences Career Events

The Life Sciences (LS) Career Events are part of Broadening Life Sciences (part C of the Life Sciences Academy). Below you can find more information about the live and online career events organized for you as a GSLS student.

Both the webinars and the live career events organized by the GSLS count towards the 2 career events part of Broadening Life Sciences. You are also allowed to follow certain career events organized by the UU: the workshops Self-analysis for Career Orientation, Transferrable Skills, and Exploring the Job Market & Networking are all good options. A personal appointment with one of the career officers can also count as one of your events. Outside of the University, we recommend the yearly BCF Career Event. Do you want to follow an event elsewhere that you think is suitable? We are always open to suggestions and you can check this with us by e-mailing us at

Life Sciences Career Event Webinars

Are you curious what kind of jobs are possible after finishing your Master's degree? Join the Life Sciences Career Event webinars!

During the webinars we invite GSLS alumni to talk about their job and the road towards it. Each event has a specific theme, either a field to work in (consultancy, non-profits, pharmaceutical industry), or a topic to help you kickstart your career (finding a job as an international, how to prepare a job interview). These events are facilitated by a GSLS career officer, and you are invited to actively ask questions and/or participate in discussions. The webinars are online and take place on Thursdays from 16:00 to 17:00. You will find the upcoming events in the list below.

Please make sure to register for the events for them to count for the Broadening Life Sciences module. Information on how to register can be found in the information per event once you click on one of the events below.
