One of the biggest hurdles in the career of many excellent women scientists is the difficulty in uprooting their family for the long postdoc abroad. Although the experience is usually a challenging one, it also entails many opportunities for the PhD student, for the partner and for the family as a whole. With the thought of demystifying the postdoc experience for both the scientist and her partner, we invite you to a round table discussion on the topic in which women scientists who has recently returned from abroad, as well as their partners, will discuss their experience over wine and cheese. One unique aspect of this meeting is to allow for partners to hear directly from the partners on their perspective of the postdoc abroad.
Round table members:
Dr. Efrat Shema, Department of Biological Regulations and Sagi Yaacoby
Dr. Shira Raveh-Rubin, Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences and Adi
