Young Statisticians Panel Discussion

What to do after graduating (Bachelor/Master/PhD)? Your career options in Biostatistics

Academia, industry or public authorities? What kind of career options do Biostatisticians have and what are the respective advantages and disadvantages? Which steps might be helpful to get there? How to combine job and family and handle dual-career problems? Are there insiders’ tips?
These are only some of the questions we would like to discuss with seven invited speakers, who are hand-picked to represent a broad spectrum of career paths in Biostatistics. We invite all early-career statisticians (Bachelor/Master/PhD students and Postdocs), but also more experienced statisticians to join the discussion and ask questions.
The panel discussion will take place on Tuesday, March 19th 2019, from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. and is open to everyone who is interested (you do not have to be an attendee of the DAGStat meeting).
It is organized by the Young Statisticians working group of the IBS-DR (AG Nachwuchs).

Young Statisticians Session


The Young Statisticians Session can be seen as prestigious rehearsal. As a chosen Young Statistician you can present your research in German or English in a friendly atmosphere with the opportunity to get feedback on your presentation (performance, content, layout, etc.). The chosen Young Statisticians will be invited to the conference and to the conference dinner and receive a certificate.

Please note: The extended abstract submission deadline for the Young Statisticians Session is November 15th!

For application and selection procedure check the attached flyer.

Who should apply?
