This year, the kick-off of the NOSTER academic year will take place on Friday 27 September 2019 in Nijmegen. During the morning programme, the Research Seminars will gather and in the afternoon we will pay attention to career paths in academia
PhD candidates and ReMA students are all trained for a career in academia. However, it is omnipresent that only a small number will eventually get a (permanent) academic position. This afternoon we will broaden our views on career perspectives in academia. We will reflect on the question to what extent it is necessary and helpful to pay attention to career planning during your ReMA or PhD, and we will hear from former PhD candidates and ReMA students in what kind of positions they ended up at universities and other academic institutions.
