Welcome Event

The Postdoc Community welcomed over 100 new postdocs on October 13th in Het Pand.

A satisfaction survey showed that no less than 100% were satisfied about this event!

Postdocs were informed by Lieve Van Hoof from the Postdoc Community on the necessity to start working at the next step of their career now.


Furthermore, Jasmien Van Daele from Department of Personnel introduced Postdoc Talent Management at Ghent University.

This program offers training, mentoring, coaching and information for postdocs. Finally, Aza Jalalvand talked about challenges for international postdocs. Not only these talks were very much appreciated by the new postdocs, also the networking possibilities. Postdocs liked the presence of most deans and the possibility to meet postdocs of all faculties. Last years’ event showed that networking is key to having a positive career outlook. Consistent with that finding, networking is the key theme of this years’ events
