Dr. Irene Adrian-Kalchhauser is a newly appointed professor at the Center for Fish and Wildlife Health at the VetSuisse in Bern and a member of the Committee for Academic Promotion of Early Career Researchers and Gender Equality (KANG).

Her research is centered on the inheritance of gene regulation in particular in fish, but also in other organisms.

Professor Adrian-Kalchhauser discussed with us the transition from postdoc to professor and the mentoring she received. She told us how she prepared for the professorship during her postdoc and about the importance of networking and how she negotiated salaries and funding.
