Employability and the Job Market
We help prepare PhD students with the skills and tools needed to embark on a successful career path after their PhD studies, either within or outside of academia.
Our Employability Portal will provide PhD students in the final year of their study with access to employers who offer internship and work experience opportunities within the Netherlands.
Would your business like to become involved in offering internship opportunities for our PhD students? Please contact us to find out more information.
Employability and Job Market Opportunities
We are currently developing a platform where we will offer short term work placement opportunities with various industry, governmental and non-governmental partners here in the North (Groningen, Friesland, Drenthe) and throughout the Netherlands. These placements are exclusively offered to University of Groningen PhD students and can be either research- or professional-based internships. More information about this programme will be posted here soon.
