You’ve dedicated years to becoming a top-notch scientist, mastering complex research and achieving what few dare to dream

Yet, despite your achievements, you find yourself facing a crossroad, clouded with uncertainty.

 Common problems scientists face at such a crossroad are:


Fear of Change and Failure:  It’s totally normal to worry about stepping off the traditional path and entering unknown territory—nobody wants to be seen as the one who couldn’t cut it. But hey, exploring new careers is about finding your true calling, not sticking to a script that doesn’t fit.


Lacking Adequate Self-Awareness: So, you’re unsure about what you really want or what you’re great at? Join the club! It's tricky to figure out your true strengths and the impact you want to make when you’re always in go-mode.


Skill Transfer Challenges: Think your academic skills won’t cut it in the ‘real world’? It might feel like you’re trying to fit a square peg into a round hole as you adapt to new professional cultures and jargon. But guess what? You’ve got a ton of valuable skills—they just need a little translating!


What if there was a way to transform your career path with confidence, supported by a network of peers who cheer your every step?

Hey there, I'm Amani!

A former scientist with a PhD in developmental biology from the Max Planck Society, and a master’s in education, and I’m passionate about helping scientists create fulfilling careers and lives. I’ve spent years understanding the challenges of academia and career development for scientists..

In 2017, I became a trainer and coach, leveraging my background in science and education to empower others. Over the past years, I’ve trained thousands of scientists from prestigious institutions worldwide, like ETH, University of Zurich, Charité, Max Planck Institutes, and more.I’ve seen firsthand the transformative power of holistic career development in a supportive community. This is why we launched Career Boosters in 2024, to provide you with a space where you can get consistent support and guidance, I call them the 3Cs: coaching, community and consistency. We aim to support you in creating long-lasting career fulfilment and not just short-lived success, by landing the next job.

I know firsthand the ups and downs of a career journey—having worked as a project manager, dancer, editor, science teacher, and many other random jobs…and several unemployment periods…and yes even getting fired!.
My past struggles with mental health, near burnout, and feeling lost for years in my own career have shaped my compassionate approach to coaching and community building. This community is here to help you navigate your career path with clarity, confidence, and more joy.

 To Your Success!
