EMBL Careers Webinar | Non-PI tracks in academic research
Our fifth webinar is aimed at early career researchers who would like to stay closely linked to academic research, but not necessarily as a research group leader. In this webinar, we invited three scientists working in staff roles in research institutes and infrastructures, to share their career paths.

- Philippe Bun, Staff Scientist, INSERM, France
- Selina Storm, Beamline Scientist, Diamond Light Source, UK
- Yasemin Turkyilmaz-van der Velden, Data Steward, TU Delft, Netherlands

After an introduction from each panellist, outlining their career path and current role, around half webinar will be dedicated to discussion, guided by questions from the audience.

Following the webinar, there will also be the option to join "meet the speakers" sessions for smaller group discussion. Places in these sessions will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis, with priority given to current PhDs and postdocs at EMBL. If you get a spot in these sessions, we will send you an email a few days before the event.

* Required information


Philippe Bun
Staff Scientist @NeurImag Imaging Facility of the Institut of Pyschiatry and Neurosciences of Paris (IPNP) / INSERM, France
Philippe Bun is a Staff Scientist in the NeurImag Imaging Facility of the Institut of Pyschiatry and Neurosciences of Paris (IPNP). He originally studied mathematics, physics and informatics, and completed a PhD in Biophysics in the “Frontiers in Life Sciences” interdisciplinary PhD programme at the Université Paris Diderot. During his PhD he investigated what minimum inputs are for shaping and organising the cell interior, applying a range of microscopy techniques. During his postdoc at EMBL Heidelberg, he expanded his microscopy expertise, applying this to contraction of F-actin networks.
Selina Storm
Beamline Scientist @Diamond Light Source, UK
Selina Storm is a Beamline Scientist at Diamond Light Source, where she has been working on improvements of the I24 beamline for serial crystallography and time-resolved experiments. She originally joined Diamond as a senior support scientist following the birth of her daughter and a PhD at EMBL Hamburg, where her project focussed on understanding how data quality for particular X-ray crystallography experiments depends on the absorbed dose, and how this can be applied to optimise data collection parameters. Her interest in working at synchrotrons was sparked during her Bachelor- and Master thesis on the structure of softwood and native cellulose
Yasemin Türkyilmaz-van der Velden
Data Steward @Delft University of Technology
Yasemin Turkyilmaz-van der Velden is a Data Steward at Delft University of Technology. She originally studied biology and completed her PhD at the Erasmus University Rotterdam, where she studied UV-induced DNA damage repair using proteomics and live cell imaging approaches. After her PhD, she started her current role and she provides customized and discipline-specific data management support to researchers at every stage of the research lifecycle, with the eventual goal of achieving a cultural change in research data management at daily practice.
