Gender and Science Meeting 2017, ETH Zürich

An international meeting for all scientists and those interested in Gender and Science (Physics and Chemistry) organized by NCCR MUST and Excellence Cluster RESOLV.

What does Gender have to do with Physics? Do women and men have the same opportunities to achieve a successful scientific career? What do the statistics show about the success rates of funding applications and (tenured) positions internationally and in Switzerland? What happens when scientists start a family? How do men and women combine family life and scientific research? These are some of the questions we will address in this meeting.

Join us to discuss the unwritten rules and assumptions in scientific culture that have an impact on gender and contribute to the debate about how to ensure that there are equal opportunities for women and men in science. Registration is open here.
