Postdocs have opportunity to develop professional skills this summer

Postdoctoral fellows have a chance to expand their professional skills – from designing their career plans to building their resumes to learning more about digital identity – at a series of workshops this summer.

Participants can choose three workshops from eight topics available. After completing these workshops, they receive a 45-minute coaching session with experts from Adoc Talent Management, a company that specializes in connecting PhD’s to human resources experts. Adoc will also deliver all workshops.

The workshops run from July 9 to 13 and August 8 to 10.

Workshops available

  • Design a personal and realistic career plan
  • Prepare your international mobility and career
  • CV, Resume, and LinkedIn profile
  • Prepare for a job interview
  • Which career opportunities after a PhD?
  • Characterize and promote your skills
  • Digital identity and networking
  • Keys to a successful integration within a company

The program has space for 40 participants. To take part postdocs must:

  • complete the registration application, and
  • ensure their supervisor will allow them to attend three workshops.

Successful applicants will be notified that a spot is available. At that time, participants will be sent workshop registration details.

You must commit to – and attend – three workshops in order to receive the 45-minute coaching session.
