Postdoctoral and Young Researcher Organization

Welcome to PYRO - The Postdoctoral and Young Researcher Organization.

We are here to help young researchers develop their careers.

Main Objectives

Independent of the path chosen (eg. Academia, industry, education, etc.), success after PhD involves navigating a landscape of short-term contracts and fierce competition for funding and positions. Thus, to make the right decisions and establish a long-term career, young researchers often require support.

PYRO tackles this urgent need for a tailored career plan, individual follow-up of young scientists, and education about securing permanent positions and funding.

PYRO will address these issues by increasing cross-department interaction and expanding early career researchers' knowledge about different career paths and how to work towards their professional goals.
