Regional representatives

To provide an attractive program in every part of Austria local representatives are operating at key locations. They organise events and form the link between the local young scientists and the Jungchemiker board.

In 2011 I decided to leave Upper Austria and study chemistry in the Styrian provincial capital Graz. Since then I appreciate my life in my new "adoptive home" so much that I started working on my PhD Thesis at the TU Graz last year. Together with the Jungchemiker I am looking forward to get young and motivated chemists in touch with associates from industry and economy.

Originally, I am from Luxemburg. I did my bachelor's degree in chemistry at the University of Innsbruck. Since fall 2018 I am studying for a master's degree in "Food technology and Nutrition" at the Management Center Innsbruck. The organization of various events and the networking between students and the industry, as well as among one another have quickly awoken my interest in this project. Therefore, I have joined the regional representatives Innsbruck back in March 2016.

Since 2013, I am studying Chemistry at the Johannes Kepler University in Linz. After my master's thesis, I am starting my doctoral thesis in the fields of analytical chemistry in November 2018. As part of the Jungchemiker, I am glad to give other students the chance to get in contact with the industry and to offer an interesting side program to their studies.

I study materials science at the university of Salzburg since winter term 2016, which especially allows me to gain new experiences in the field of chemistry. I really enjoy working with people and making new contacts. Therefore, my work as a student representative suits perfectly since it allows me to stay in touch with my fellow students and organize new projects. I was pleased to hear about the idea of the Austrian Young Chemists Network to establish a location here in Salzburg and I am really looking forward to the new projects we are going to set up together.

Name: Sarah Keck

I studied chemistry at the Friedrich-Schiller-University in Jena and came to Vienna with an exchange program in 2015. My master thesis was a cooperation project and I did my practical part at the University of Vienna. Since December 2017, I am working on my doctoral thesis at Vienna University of Technology in the research division of Macromolecular Chemistry. In Germany, I was a student representative and a member of the Jungchemikerforum Jena. I visited several conferences for chemistry student representatives and JCF spring symposia to support the networking of chemistry students in the German-speaking area. It is a great joy to share my experiences and work together with other young chemists throughout Austria..
