WiSE UP 2016-2017 Speaker Profiles

Tennie VidelerTennie Videler 

Facilitator of the Career Anchors Workshop

Tennie works for the University of Cambridge as Research Funding Coordinator at Cambridge Institute of Public Health. She did an undergraduate degree in Chemistry in the Netherlands. An opportunity to spend nine months in the UK as an exchange student resulted in Tennie starting a PhD research project on the interface between chemistry and biology. She spent 16 years doing research on structural biology, using different techniques on different systems.

Tennie has always enjoyed public engagement and communicating science to both children and adults. Towards the end of her postdoctoral career, she decided that she wanted to use her ‘people’ skills supporting researchers. So Tennie worked for Vitae, a careers organization specializing in careers and development of researchers. She then returned to Cambridge University as the coordinator for one of their research networks, followed by short stints in the NHS and with the Royal Society of Chemistry, both focusing on academic researchers. She is now back at the University once again in a different research network, this time for Public Health.
