Academic Career Talks

Insights into academic career possibilities after the doctorate

Academic Career Talks is an event series organized by the Graduate Campus which gives postdoctoral researchers and PhD candidates the opportunity to gain insights into academic career possibilities in their subject areas.

Speakers from within (and outside) the University talk about their own experiences, including important factors and career decisions made along their career paths. The event allows for individual questions and discussions with the speakers.
