PhACe online - Utrecht University



Online via Microsoft Teams


The corporate Human Resources department supports PhD candidates who want to think about their (future) career and want to further develop their skills. Therefore, PhACE - the PhD Activating Career Event - is organised three times a year.

Career opportunities after a PhD are highly debated topic among PhD candidates. Many candidates starting a PhD want to end up in academia. However, this is a difficult career step that is not always possible. 

PhACE aims to give you insight into the great value and different career opportunities of your PhD. As a doctoral candidate, you are a top academic performer with a broad scope of experience who may fit in many different sectors of employment. 

During PhACE, people who succesfully completed their PhD and now work in different career fields talk about their careers. They share their professional experiences with you and explain the skills that are needed to  transfer to areas outside academia. Besides the discussions with these professionals, two workshops sessions are offered. The goal of the workshops is to help you explore and improve your personal strenghts and skills. 

Registration will open on Monday 4 Januari.
