Because of the uncertain COVID-Situation, the organizers decided to postpone the LS2 Annual Meeting 2022. The event will be held in Geneva, 21-22 April 2022. This session offers postdocs interested in an academic career an opportunity to present a plenary talk similar in format to a professorship interview seminar.

Selected participants will have the chance to get a slot for a 15-minute presentation, which should appeal to a broad audience and in which the achievements accomplished and the proposed future research is to be explained. The talk will be followed by a 10-minute discussion on various aspects of the proposed activity, as well as on career-oriented aspects of the presenter. A knowledgeable jury panel of professors will evaluate the presentations.

The best presentation will be awarded a prize. However, everyone is a winner, as all presenters in the session will receive feedback from the jury in a one-on-one private session afterward. Moreover, as a participant in the LS2 Annual Meeting 2022, you will have the opportunity to expand or refresh your network in Switzerland via interaction with scientists in and outside your field. Only applicants having ties to Switzerland will be considered(i.e. Swiss citizenship, Swiss residency, past or ongoing affiliation with a Swiss institution of at least two years by the 2022 meeting). Independent position holders are not eligible.
