I am a last year PhD student in neurobiology. I am now looking for new opportunities where I can further develop my communication and people’s skills in a business environment. Besides different research skills, during my PhD I developed project management, analytical and communication skills. I also got involved in parallel projects where I gained a first insight in budget and people’s management in the organization of events. I now want to combine the different skills I acquired during my PhD together with my joy for contact with people.
