The North America Chapter of the Marie Curie Alumni Association (MCAA) and EURAXESS North America welcome you to a session dedicated to offer forward-looking perspectives on trans-Atlantic job opportunities beyond the constraints of a large hiring freeze in the shadow of the global pandemic.
This event wishes to encourage the discovery of sources, alternatives and approaches able to provide researchers with an encouraging and innovative skill set to move beyond limitations, isolation and particular academic and professional cultures.
Another important dimension covered by the speakers will be not just the recovery but the diversification of job networking platforms via digital media and how different organizations and fora can contribute to a newly thriving collaborative ecosystem re-igniting research carriers in new and promising directions.
