Dear PhD students & Researchers

Are you concerned for finding a job after obtaining your PhD degree or after your post-doctoral research? Do you think holding a PhD degree makes the job search even harder?

Are you wondering if there is a way to facilitate your professional transition from the academy to the industry? Then you can’t miss the opportunity to hear about the BNF program in Switzerland! 

BNF is a Swiss qualification program aimed at highly qualified unemployed people to open up professional perspectives. The program offers temporary projects that are specific to the participant’s needs, and a support package of expert advice, complementary training and personal coaching.

Dr. Alexandre Noël, Head of the BNF Lausanne will explain what you must do, to register as an unemployed to the ORP (Office Regional de Placement), a pre-requisite to participate in the BNF Program. He will also address all you need to know about the program itself, and how to apply once you have reached the end of your contract.

Target audience: Master students, PhD students, Postdocs at the end of their contracts, and anyone else interested in knowing more about the BNF program.
When: Wednesday, December 7th at 6pm

Where: EPFL SV bulding, room SV1717 (ground floor)

After the talk, you are invited to join an apero from 7pm to 8pm, where you will have the chance to personally discuss with Dr Alexander Noel.
