HDBMB Junior Section
Junior section, HDBMB - Croatian Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology
HDBMB Junior Section (HDBMB JS) is the Junior Section of the Croatian Society of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (HDBMB). It was set up in 2020 to support the career development and networking opportunities of students and young researchers in the molecular life sciences in Croatia. The HDBMB JS organise and deliver their own activities, under the supervision of their Society and all members of the HDBMB JS are members of the HDBMB. HDBMB JS are also part of the FEBS Junior Section. To find out more about the HDBMB JS read their overview post and check out the online talks and other activities they deliver, accesible from the 'Popular contributions' section below.
I spent 40 years teaching and researching, and developed a particular interest in education and career development. I chaired the Education Committee and was Careers advisor for the UK Biochemical Society. In these roles, and my work with students at the University of Manchester, I realised how important it is for young scientists to recognise their skills and be able to "sell" themselves to potential employers (and grant awarding bodies). I now run CV support sessions for young scientists on behalf of the FEBS Education Committee, of which I was a founder member.
