ACHIEVE Career workshop – Stepping stone to a career in Virology

März 29, 2022 - März 30, 2022



Career workshop for doctoral students and postdoctoral fellows

On the 29th and 30th of March 2022* the third ACHIEVE Spring School of the Society for Virology (GfV) will take place in Munich, Germany. This year’s theme is “PREPARED” and the two-day workshop will feature seminars focussing on methods in virology, communication/networking, career options and funding opportunities. We will have experts talking about the “behind the scenes” of their path to an academic or industry career, lively discussions and tips from professionals. We will feature state-of-the-art methodologies presented from experts in their field. We will answer questions such as: How do you write a good grant? Where can I obtain financial support? And we will highlight the power of networking and being “visible”. Did you ever struggle to explain your research/project to non-experts? No longer, participate in our science slam and communicate your science excitement to your peers.
The programme aims at doctoral students from the fields of medicine, veterinary medicine or life sciences and at postdoctoral fellows. Places are limited to ensure optimal interaction between participants and guest speakers.
The participation of the students in the ACHIEVE Spring School is financed by a scholarship, which includes the costs for accommodation and meals. An application consists of a curriculum vitae and a letter of motivation (maximum one page). Applications can now be sent by e-mail to .

The closing date for applications is February 20th, 2022.

* Due to the current COVID-19 situation, we will decide approx. 4 weeks ahead if the event can take place as planned. In case the situation continues to be critical we anticipate delaying the workshop until June 2022.

We receive support from Roche.
