Research Training and career Postdocs Radboud Postdoc Initiative

As a last year PhD student you probably will start to explore in what discipline you would like to continue your career after you completed your PhD. Do you want to continue in academia, switch to industry, consultancy? What kind of options are out there? What to expect?

The Radboud Postdoc Initiative represents the interest of all postdoctoral fellows and last year PhD candidates working at Radboudumc. Several times a year RPI organizes lunch meetings and pizza and beer events in which different topics are addressed including career opportunities in- and outside academia, grant writing, improve your soft skills, scientific integrity and more.
