About YLSA

What is ÖGMBT YLSA?

Young Life Scientists Austria (YLSA) is the bottom-up initiative of the Austrian Association of Molecular Life Sciences and Biotechnology (ÖGMBT), from and for young scientists. The goal is to establish a network among young life scientists within the association. The ÖGMBT YLSA is supposed to offer a platform for proactively launched projects to strengthen its members. YLSA is organised in four Austrian branches: North, South, West and East. It does not matter in which city you are living, you can attend all events of all branches.

Why was YLSA founded?

YLSA was founded due to a simple reason: Only about 3.5 % of life science graduates can secure a permanent position at a university with more and more PhDs graduating, while faculty positions are stagnating. But where does the rest go to? Originally trained as scientists, many will continue doing an “industrial” or other science-related jobs outside academia. Jobcentres at universities offer job fairs and “how to apply” initiatives – but in many cases, the question of what the job is actually about remains unanswered upon application. YLSA aims to close this information gap between life science students and life science job profiles outside academia. YLSA thereby addresses the following questions:

  • Which positions outside academia do I qualify for with a life science degree?
  • How do I get in touch with people doing this job?
  • What were their experiences with the application process?
  • Which DOs and DON’Ts do they recommend?

What is YLSA doing?

YLSA organises various events to bring together students and early graduates of life science disciplines with graduates working outside academia as well as with life science companies. As such, YLSA organises:

  • “Out of the Box Talks”, where experts with a life science background, working outside academia, talk about their experiences and job profiles.
  • Pharma and biotech company visits, ranging from small and medium-sized enterprises to big pharmaceutical companies.
  • Regular tables and social events to also strengthen the network among participants and organizers of YLSA events.

The YLSA & Friends initiative

YLSA East (Vienna region) is proud to announce that as of January 2019, the “YLSA & Friends” program, supported by the ÖGMBT has officially been launched. YLSA & Friends is an interdisciplinary partnership program that builds on successful activities - such as company visits or “Out of the Box Talks” - in order to create even more opportunities for participating young life science students. As such, YLSA & Friends allows the YLSA to invite young graduates from disciplines unrelated to the life sciences sector, who in their profession are frequent users of goods and products originating from life sciences. YLSA & Friends shall thereby lead to an interdisciplinary exchange between young life scientists as "designers" of innovative goods and "users" of the same. This exchange shall ultimately allow young life scientists to get to know the “user” perspective, as enriching addition to their prevalent life sciences perspective. Starting in the Vienna region this year, YLSA & Friends will subsequently be implemented all over Austria with the ultimate goal of improved products, enabled by biotechnology, in the future.

How can I participate in YLSA events?

Being a member of ÖGMBT enables you to participate in all YLSA activities. Our events are announced in the ÖGMBT newsletter, the ÖGMBT homepage, calendar and our social media channels. YLSA is supported by the ÖGMBT board, which multiplies events via round-mailings. It does not matter which channel informed you about an event, the registration is only one e-mail away. Besides being a participant, you can also get active and if you have an idea for a workshop, a talk, or other events, just reach out to us and we will find the best support for your event.
