How to Get a Job Outside Academia

We invite you to an event focused on job hunting. Get tips of the trade from experienced recruitment expert Birgit O’Sullivan.

Birgit O’Sullivan (O’Sullivan Consulting) finds candidates for companies. Originally a theologian, she has transitioned from ministry to HR in technology companies to becoming an independent headhunter. In 2020 she could also call herself an author. The book Jobjagt is about all the various aspects of getting the right job.

"I’m certainly no specialist in physics, but I am a specialist in career assessments as well as recruitment! I will provide tips & tricks to help you in your move from academia into a job outside an academic environment. I’ll also ensure time for Q&As."

Date: Tuesday, March 2nd 2021
Time: 19.30-20.30

Women in Astronomy

On March 9th, 2021 (in celebration of International Women's Day) KIF is teaming up with Astronomy on Tap Copenhagen to bring you a special event featuring two women who have excelled in the field of astronomy:

Associate Professor Irene Tamborra does research in the areas of theoretical particle astrophysics and astrophysics. She is mainly interested in exploring the role of weakly interacting particles, such as the neutrino, in astrophysics and cosmology. Irene is the receipient of a long list of research grants and has recently received the Villum Young Investigator Plus grant. Also, she was awarded the KIF Prize 2020 for being an outstanding role model.

Professor Anja Andersen's field of research is the astrophysics of dust. Cosmic dust particles play an important role for the thermal, dynamical and chemical conditions in many astrophysical environments, especially for the star and planet formation process and the late stages of stellar evolution. Anja has received a long list of grants and prizes, both for her academic work and for her outreach efforts, and she is often interviewed by various media outlets. Anja was appointed Professor for the public understanding of science and technology at the Niels Bohr Institute in 2017, and she is a former chairwoman of KIF.

Please note: This is an in-person event!

Participation is free, but registration is necessary. Seats can be booked here
