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.


At our fourth online JURE Career Day, we are pleased to offer a rich and varied programme of interactive workshops, panels and Q and A sessions.

The Career Day was hosted online on the 5th of March 2024. Details about the 2025 edition will be circulated in the autumn of 2024.
