Family Picnic with DION!

DION are happy to invite you to a family-friendly picnic at beautiful Korsvika. Bring your family – or the kid within you – to enjoy some food and games by the sea.

When and where: 26 August at 13:00–16:00, Korsvika, Trondheim

This is a great opportunity for you as a PhD, postdoc or temporary scientific employee to meet your colleagues across NTNU, and for your offspring have a fun day out! We will provide some hot and cold beverages and snacks. We will also bring some games that are easy to learn and fun regardless of age, such as the Viking game of “kubb” and the very Trondheimian “basse”. Please bring whatever you would like to eat and a blanket or something to sit on.

When you arrive Korsvika you will recognize us by the DION-shirts. We will also keep you posted where we set up base. Feel free to arrive and leave whenever suits you!

As August can bring both beautiful summer days as well as terrible rainy ones, the event is weather dependent, so please pay attention to possible rescheduling.

We hope you will come and enjoy some last bits of summer with us!

Debate «The postdoc dilemma – when to stay and when to leave academia?»

The Young Academy of Norway arranges a debate «The postdoc dilemma – when to stay and when to leave academia?».

May 23 at 20:00 in Klubben, Samfundet.

The panel discussion will be held in English and will address different topics and challenges related to the “postdoc career path”. How can you best navigate in and out of academia? How are you to balance between expectations inside and outside academia and for how long? When is it time to let go?

The event is free of charge and useful not only for postdocs, but also for PhDs. The president of DION, Nina Røkkum, will moderate the debate. Read more about the program and register here:
