The Early Career Scientists Fora of the four large LHC experiments have joined forces to organise a cycle of soft skills workshops, where each event will focus on a different career development training aspect (CV writing, grant writing, importance of networking, career paths, negotiations for a new job, interview preparation, etc.).

The fourth of these workshops will take place on March 10, starting at 13:00 CET, and will be dedicated to "Interview skills for academia". We plan to discuss interview skills for postdoc, tenure-track and permanent positions in academia. Given the ongoing COVID-19 situation, the event is going to be online only.

The workshop will start with an introductory presentation, followed by a round table discussion with invited panelists and a Q&A session with open questions from all participants at the end.

The panel will consist of:

  • Archana Sharma (CERN)
  • Lesya Shchutska (EPFL)
  • Lydia Roos (Paris LPNHE)
  • Patrick Koppenburg (Nikhef)
  • Paul Jackson (U. Adelaide)
  • Sahal Yacoob (U. Cape Town)
  • Sandra Padula (São Paulo State University)
  • Tova Holmes (U. Tennessee)
