PhD Career Day

Learn more about your job opportunities in the industry

PhD Career Day is an annual event organised by AU Career PhD & JR where young researchers and companies can meet and network.

In 2020 PhD Career Day will take place on Nov.18th in Stakladen (Fredrik Nielsens Vej 2-4, 8000 Aarhus C).

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 for PhD students and junior researchers as well as introducing the companies to the talents at Aarhus University.

PhD Career Day is a 2,5-hour career fair and begins with a short representation of all the participating companies. In 2019, 20 companies were represented while around 185 PhDs students and junior researchers primarily from the Life and Natural sciences participated.

Companies are not required to bring job adverts to PhD Career Day or to be recruiting specific profiles at the time of the event.

We aim to attract a diversity of both companies and young researchers, so all company types are welcome if they want to know what people with a research background can do for them.

The event is free of charge.
