4th PSC-Syngenta Symposium 2015

A group of 30 PhD students, Post docs and PIs visited the Syngenta Crop Protection Research Center in Stein on August 27th. The one-day symposium focused on an exchange of latest research innovation benefiting from beneficial microbes. During a guided tour the group had the opportunity of getting to know the seed care institute and the new green house facilities. In the afternoon Christina Uhl presented an overview of career opportunities at Syngenta. The company offers two entry points to PhD students: as a team leader or as a scientific expert. Christina emphasized that not only scientific skills but also a soft skill package that includes experiences in different cultures are important for a successful recruitment. Thus it becomes more and more important to incorporate such a diversity in your portfolio. For example through internships, exchange programs or short term visits abroad. The PSC is happy to support you with it! See PSC course program. Vacancies at the different Syngenta research centers are published at http://www.syngentajobs.com.
