PhD Career Week 2022

Almost 500 people signed up for PhD Career Week 2022. Thanks to all of you for making this a successful event.

PhD Career Week 2022 encompassed  6 career workshops and 21 company presentations spread out over three days. The participating companies covered all types of industries.

PhD Career Week is an annual event where young researchers can learn more about the career prospects, meet with companies, and network. The event is open for PhDs and junior researchers from all universities in Denmark with the aim of providing an overview of non-academic career possibilities as well as introducing the companies to the talents at the Danish universities.

We are in the process of planning PhD Career Week 2023 which will contain a three day virtual fair with career workshops and job-function presentations. In addition to last year we will also present a physical career fair with 20 companies 27 April 2023 - save the date.
