10th From PhD to Job Market: 'Put your PhD to Work!'

Career management event organized by UGent, VUB, UA, UHasselt and KU Leuven

Your career is likely to take you outside the hallowed halls of academia. Exploring the non-academic realm is a vitalizing and thoroughly exhilarating process, but often causes a great deal of anxiety and nervousness. From PhD to Job Market will help you reduce your fears and increase your “real-life” successes.

Join us for a supercharged and future-forward conference on career paths and opportunities for PhDs in (bioscience) engineering and natural sciences with keynote lectures, PhD career stories and several labour market oriented workshops.

Places are limited! Do not miss your chance to register for this cutting edge doctoral conference!
