What can I expect after my doctorate? What opportunities do I have and how do I find suitable jobs? Answering these questions and planning the next career step after the doctorate is a challenge for many doctoral candidates. The Career Days provide orientation for the transition phase after the doctorate with practical tips and tricks. 

The Career Days will take place online from 14 to 16 November 2023. The event includes three formats: impulse workshops, information lectures and career talks.
