Our Career Development Program:

After all the years working in Academia and after many conversations with students and postdoctoral trainees I realized how difficult it is to build a supportive network and how hard it is to plan your next career move.

We will launch a 10 weekly sessions Career Development Program for PhD students, Postdocs and Staff Scientists.

In this program:

  • You will actively learn more about your individual strengths, values and interests.

  • You will obtain information about a variety of career paths.

  • You will be integrated in a supportive environment for self and career exploration with the members of your group.

In today’s fast-changing world, one’s career path does not follow a straight trajectory and planning your career is a process that takes time to process and think carefully. That is why this program is organised in 10 weekly sessions, 2h/session. Heightening your awareness of your professional identity will not only help you better define your “best fit” career path(s), but also enable you to make deliberate choices that will better prepare you for a fulfilling future career.

Please contact Filipa at to get more information about this program or related topics.
