For whom?

Regardless of whether you have just started your research studies, are preparing to publicly defend your thesis or find yourself somewhere in between, there is every reason for you to think about your (future) career. After the public defence of your doctoral thesis, your career could lead you into academia or outside it, in Sweden or abroad.

Your career development

Your career is a consequence of choices you make. In order to make it easier for doctoral students to make informed decisions about their careers, we have gathered seminars, workshops, courses and more that are relevant to career development in one way or another under our career concept for doctoral students. You can choose to take part in one activity or in all of them.

How it works

With a few exceptions, all activities are offered in English and are free of charge both to the participating individual and to their department/equiv. All activities are adapted to doctoral students and all activities will contribute in one way or another to your career development. The activities do not give you any credits and do not entitle you to an extension of your appointment.

Many of the activities are available in Kompetensportalen, where you can also sign up for them.
