    Life after PostDoc: Should I stay or should I go?
    Career orientation workshop for Postdoc researchers

    When: May 14, 2019

    Time: 9 – 13h (Lunch included)

    Doing a postdoc is a uniquely challenging adventure that allows you to further explore your passion for research, your potential as a scientist and to build strong leadership and project management skills. When postdoc researchers are surveyed, however, they often mention that this challenge also comes with feeling anxious, frustrated, overwhelmed , and sometimes even disillusioned. 

    In order for you to assess whether the pros outweigh the challenges, it is important to regularly make time to reflect on your career aspirations.

    To assist you in this personal thought experiment, we are offering you the chance to participate in a career orientation workshop, provided by an experienced career coach from Jobdesign. They follow an evidence-based approach integrating what science has taught us about job motivation and how design principles can empower us to create the career that fits us best. 

    In this workshop, you will get to know your professional self and learn how to craft your career accordingly.
