Detta Jobbsnack har redan ägt rum, och går inte att anmäla sig till.


If you are studying the Bachelor of Science Program in Life Science or the Master of Science in Biotechnology program, you have theopportunity to listen to alumni who tell you about what it is like to work and live in the Umeå region.

Moderator for this Jobbsnack is Karolina Broman, Chair of the Education committee at the Faculty of Science and Technology. Karolina mostly teaches students at the upper secondary school teacher education programme and the supplementary programme in secondary education. One of her most common and meaningful tasks is to examine teacher students when they do their practice courses in schools. Karolina has worked with Virtual Reality within the Life Science and Biotechnology programmes, as a new teaching approach to visualize chemical structures.


08.30-09.00 Drop in and coffee      

09.00-09.10 Moderator, Karolina  Broman - Welcome,  the labor market in the Umeå region      

09.10-09.40 Emma Johansson - A  combination of molecular biology and life sciences. The journey to work as a  researcher at a biorefinery and the employment needs linked to the transition  to fossil-free alternatives.      

09.40-09.55 Coffee  break      

09.55-10.25 Julia Johansson,  Oskar Kohl and Erika Gelfgren  - Agrisera  is specialized in antibody production and purification. Oskar, who graduated  from the Life Science program, tells more about what it is like to work as a  safety representative and Julia talks about what it is like to work as a  laboratory technician after her degree as an Engineering Biotechnology. Erika  will talk about companies' needs for competence.    

10.25-10.55 Johanna Källman - what it is like to work as a process engineer at the  biorefinery Domsjö Fabriker. Johanna will also provide an insight into the  factory's need for future skills.    

10.55-11.00 Moderator, Karolina  Broman - Summary  and conclusion    

11.00-12.00 Mingle  and lunch
