I am a motivated PhD in Biotechnology who wants to employ his skills in molecular biology and project management in an applied job in the life-sciences or business sector. To further strengthen my competences in project management, I recently followed the PRINCE2® Foundation course. Moreover, as a member of the organizing committee of the PhD-student symposium VIBes 2012, my skills and interest in leadership, communication and marketing have grown.
