1st University Postdoc Day - June 8 2023 – Programme

Are you currently a postdoctoral researcher at our university or are you in the last year of your PhD? Then join the HR Department and RIVA on the afternoon of June 8 2023 for the first university Postdoc Day. After a welcome speech of Ronny Blust (Vice-Rector Research) we offer a variety of sessions on topics relevant for postdocs, during plenary and parallel sessions.

In the plenary sessions you will get to know more about:

  • Research. Courage. Dreams. Skills. Recipes to feed your career hunger
  • Courses and initiatives specifically aimed at postdocs
  • The organisation of a UAntwerp postdoc community (discussion, your input is welcome)
  • The launch of a new webpage for postdocs

In the parallel sessions you can choose between sessions focused on:

  • Career perspectives and testimonials beyond academia
  • Mental health and wellbeing
  • Efficient science communication

There will also be plenty of opportunity to meet your fellow postdocs during coffee and a networking reception.
