PhD Career Week

PhD Career Day's special edition in 2021: Virtual PhD Career Week (20-22 April)

  

PhD Career Day is an annual event where young researchers can learn more about their career prospects, meet with companies, and network.

The event is open for PhDs and junior researchers from all faculties at Aarhus University with the aim of providing an overview of non-academic career possibilities as well as introducing the companies to the talents at Aarhus University.
