Not Only Physics

10 November 2017
Two meetings on career opportunities outside academia

Not Only Physics is a series of informal meetings – not only for physicists – with former SISSA PhD students in Physics who are now employed outside academia, in major national and international companies. The two appointments are planned on 17 November and 1 December in SISSA at 2 pm.

The events are meant to provide a physicists’ view on the current (non-academic) job market as well as a number of useful tips to those who are willing to explore it, including SISSA PhD students in disciplines other than Physics.

The meetings, organized by the Interdisciplinary Laboratory, will take place at SISSA, room 128, with the following calendar and guests:

Friday 17 November, 2-3.30 pm
Nicola Bassan - Program management office team leader & Innovation Specialist, Fincantieri S.p.A., Trieste - PhD in 2012
Luca Capriotti - Managing Director, Quantitative Strategies at Credit Suisse, New York - PhD in 2000

Friday 1 December, 2-3.30 pm
Valentina Riva - Head of Strategists at Mercuria Energy Trading, Geneva - PhD in 2004
Osvaldo Zagordi - Institute of medical virology, University of Zurich, data Scientist and founder of enGene Statistics, Zurich - PhD in 2007

In case you are interested in a personal meeting with these guests, please send a message to the ILAS Secretary ( in order to have this arranged.
