About the speaker: 

Ina is an alumna of the IMPRS Molecular Biology MSc/PhD program. She completed her MSc and PhD studies in the lab of Prof. Matthias Dobbelstein at the UMG working on the effects of the p53-Mdm2 signalling network on DNA replication in 2018.

After a short PostDoc in the Dobbelstein lab, Ina continued her path by pursuing an MBA degree at the Collège des Ingénieurs in Munich, Turin and Paris. During this program, Ina joined Evonik Industries AG for a project in the Corporate Controlling department of the company. After graduating in 2020, she proceeded with a full-time position at Evonik and further explored the world of business cases, M&A, strategic financial planning for the next two years. Besides number crunching and business processes, Ina has discovered a new passion for organisational and cultural change which led her to her new position as Transformation Management Officer at the Health Care business of Evonik.

In this session, Ina is looking forward to sharing her experience on the process of finding her path and how to grow in a corporate culture.

About the sessions: Our Career Impulse Sessions offer a platform for interactive and informal exchange about career-related topics for PhD students and postdocs in the Life and Natural Sciences. By inviting PhD holders with different career paths, we would like to illustrate the broad range of potential careers for PhD students and postdocs and give inspiration for career choices.
