“What is daily life like for a researcher? What are the studies that lead to such a career? What is the role of an engineer in a scientific project or the role of an assistant manager in a laboratory? Such are the questions that we try to answer via the virtual Career Lab,” explains Claire Lissalde, Manager of the audiovisual unit at Inserm’s Department of Scientific Information and Communication.
Visitors to the website are immersed in the heart of a laboratory, and a voiceover helps them to meet professionals working in biomedical research. An opportunity to learn about their career paths and shed light on careers that are often little understood, or considered beyond reach.
Thus Marie, an assistant in biological techniques, and Stéphanie, a researcher and joint manager of an Inserm team, Boris, manager of a phenotyping platform, Joanna, a technician in animal experimentation, Pablo, a post-doctoral fellow, and even Lila, secretary/manager of a research unit, will share their passion about their jobs with you.
