50 Years VAUZ

Mus(s)e 2018 @ Kunsthalle


@ the UZH Science Festival 100 Ways of Thinking the VAUZ - in celebration of its 50. anniversary - hosts


Slow down, relax, stay curious, creative & mentally healthy in academia

Join us for Mus(s)e @ Kunsthalle Zürich!

Science as a vocation and/or profession? Work in academia needs passion. But how can we keep up with the rat race and retain enough energy for truly inspired work? Are we regularly kissed by our muse Calliope? And what should we do when we drown in musts? Take a moment to pause and rethink academia‘s demands as well as the benefi ts and liberties it offers. Join us for a yoga session and an afternoon of talks and conversations on academia as a workplace @ Kunsthalle Zürich. And stay on for some drinks and dancing to get to know more of your fellow academics. We look forward to an inspirational Mus(s)e!
For PhD students, PostDocs, scientific employees & interested people. No registration necessary. All program items are free of charge.
