From PhD to Job Market : 20 September 2019

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 life sciences and medicine with keynote lectures, PhD career stories and several labour market oriented workshops. The full programme can be found on the conference website

The event is open to all PhD researchers in the life sciences and medicine UAntwerp, Ghent University, VUB, KU Leuven and UHasselt.
