Talent Center

The University of Antwerp is an engaged employer for all its employees, irrespective of the duration of their contract. Based on an HR policy that is grounded on motivating its employees, the university aims to invest in lifelong employability. This mission forms the basis of the Talent Center (HR Department): we aim to encourage and support early-career researchers in a pro-active management of their (future) career. For this purpose, the Talent Center organizes career counseling, training and networking initiatives that focus on career development and are tailor-made to early-career researchers.

The individual career coaching is a new service that targets doctoral and postdoctoral researchers who are struggling with questions regarding their future careers. We are happy to explain our service further to all those interested on January 15th during the first coffee break and lunch. See you there!
