Stopping working in the lab and changing to a position in customer-oriented fields in Industry – is this really a career option for a scientist after receiving the PhD degree? Isn’t it boring and is a PhD needed therefore at all?

Dr. Astrid Sitte and Dr. Fabian Zehender, working in the customer support and sales team at NanoTemper Technologies, will share their experiences about this topic. They will provide insights into the workflow and challenges they are encountering on a daily basis. They will also explain responsibilities and essential skills when working for a company in a customer related position.
