“What I have appreciated most from SEB is the engagement and support I have had from more experienced scientists. Sarah Blackford (Head of Education & Public Affairs at the SEB) in particular has taken me under her wing and given me one-on-one sessions to discuss my career prospects and CV. Because I enjoy the teaching and supervision side of academia Sarah introduced me to her far-reaching network – so I now have access to academic teaching programs from around the world.”
