Career Perspectives Series for PhDs

The Career Perspectives Series (CPS) was developed in the framework of the PhD Scholarship Programme and is open to all PhD students at the University of Groningen. The programme provides training for PhDs in the area of soft-skills development and how to translate these skills to successful careers outside or inside academia:

"You cannot climb the career ladder with your hands in your pockets." (Dutch Coaching Calendar)

During your PhD studies here in Groningen, we hope that you will take the opportunity to follow the Career Perspectives Series and discover what it is that makes you passionate about research and how you can develop your talents and skills as a researcher towards a successful and fulfilling career after your PhD!

For any questions or suggestions about the CPS Programme, please feel free to contact us at the Graduate Schools or send an email to phd-cps@rug.nl
