Career Day

The annual JURE Career Day offers junior researchers the opportunity to engage with questions about and advice on career building and opportunities beyond your PhD.

Through direct, informal interaction with senior researchers as well as a number of workshops focusing on career building and corresponding academic skills, we aim to support junior researchers in their academic endeavours.
