Are you considering a job in research but not sure yet if a job in research could be something for you or which direction to take? Then this Career College could help you gaining an insight in how a career in research could look like. 

Our panel of researchers will talk about their careers and experience in research within the academic and business environment. It is with great pleasure to present the panel members who will be joining this event:

•    Guadalupe Cañas Herrera – PhD Candidate in Physics, Lorentz Institute for Theoretical Physics and Leiden Observatory
•    Mirjam Kruijt – PhD Candidate, LUMC department of Clinical Chemistry (former: Assistant Scientist at Janssen)
•    Britt Duijndam – PhD Candidate and Non-clinical Assessor, College ter Beoordeling van Geneesmiddelen
•    Nienke van der Marel – Assistant Professor Leiden Observatory

During the Career College, you will have the opportunity to ask questions and discuss topics with the panel members, such as: 

  • What is the difference between research within an academic and business environment?
  • Why doing a PhD (or not)?
  • How does a typical workday look like?
  • Which skills are necessary to be a successful researcher?
  • What do they like most (and don't like so much) about their role in research?

Join the discussion and ask your questions about the opportunities and challenges, frustrations and success factors of working in research.

This career college is free of charge and available to all Bachelor and Master students and recent graduates of Leiden University. Note: In contrast to last semester, this event can now be followed by students from all faculties and study programmes.

The Career College will take place online via Kaltura. If you register for the career college, you will receive further details and a link to the Kaltura room a day before the event at the latest.
