PhD Days 2024:  Onward to the next step in my career!

Welcome to the 4th edition of Université de Liège's PhD Day! 🌟

Did you miss PhD Day in 2023? RISE and ReD are making up for it with 2 exceptional days of bilingual (Fr/En) workshops and conferences on the theme of the transition from the end of your thesis to the rest of your professional career!

Whether you're at the start of your career or close to your thesis defence, it's never too early to start thinking about your future.

Did you know that only a third of PhD graduates go on to pursue an academic career? Or that the majority of them find a job through an unsolicited application within 4 months of graduation (Rapport 2022 - ORCS)?

Over the course of these 2 days, come and learn more about possible career opportunities after your thesis, and try out practical tools for synthesizing your research, carrying out a skills assessment, creating a draft CV, or presenting yourself at a conference or job interview with impact!

Immerse yourself in this captivating program of stimulating lectures and practical workshops, led by almost 30 experienced speakers.

Meet other PhD students, exchange ideas and develop your professional network. Take advantage of unique opportunities to connect with industry experts and partner companies.
