BAM Seminar: Career transition from academia to biosafety officer at Valneva

April 28, 2023 @ 15:00 16:30 CEST

As part of our “Biology At Most” seminar series we invite speakers from all types of life science career paths. They will share their visions, perspectives and expertise in their field in a informal environment.

The Guest is Dr. Shawon Gupta

Dr. Shawon Gupta is currently working as a biosafety officer at Valneva, a multinational vaccine company based in Stockholm. Shawon carried out his PhD studies at Karolinska Institutet followed by a PostDoc at Heidelberg University and has since made a successful transition from academia to industry. During the talk, he will share insights on his career journey, including the challenges he faced and how he overcame them. Shawon will also discuss his current work as a biosafety officer, giving you a glimpse in his world.

This event is mainly aimed at PhD students and Postdocs, but researchers in all stages of their career are of course welcome to attend. Join us as we highlight real-life success stories and provide valuable insights on how to make a transition as smooth as possible.

You can join the meeting in person or via zoom (Meeting ID: 616 1985 4442). We will have time for fika and mingling after the seminar. Please register via the google form until April 25th to be considered for the fika.

This seminar series is organized by the PhD & Postdoc Council. For more information about the Council and other events check our page.
