Workshop on professional Development for Young Researchers
Being aware that only one in four post-doctoral students get a position as Principal Investigator, the ‘Professional Development Workshop for Young Researchers’ aims to provide strong arguments to encourage the idea that doctoral training not only serves to develop a complete academic career, but also to acquire a higher level education that is highly valued in various sectors within or outside the world of science. These alternative routes offer a different career and projection in which many young doctors perform satisfactorily.
The objectives of the Workshop are:
- To emphasize the value of transferable skills for developing a successful academic career.
- To show the different professional opportunities for which the PhD title in Sciences offers an adequate training.
- To serve as a meeting and information point between young researchers and different experts in other positions within and outside the academic career.
- To open a discussion forum among young researchers about other job opportunities that may awaken their vocation.
