(03-07-2017) Join this 1-day conference aiming to boast and boost employment opportunities for PhDs in (biooscience) engineering and natural sciences.

From PhD to Job Market is a 1-day conference aiming to boast and boost employment opportunities for PhDs. This 10th edition features engaging speakers across a wide range of professional occupations who share their personal insights into life beyond a PhD in (bioscience) engineering and natural sciences.

Afternoon workshops will help participants identify realistic career opportunities in and beyond academia. Amongst many other things, the various stages of the selection process to land a job in the EU institutions will be broached; different types of international careers (headquarters vs field work) and opportunities with the UN will be discussed at length; and powerful career drivers that shape individual career decisions will be identified. Our host, ArcelorMittal will organise a speed meet showcasing different positions open to PhD degree holders within the world’s largest steelworks.
