CENIDE Career Day


Can you already see the finish line of your PhD or are you a postdoctoral researcher with no clear vision of what comes next?! Or are you just interested about possible career paths in general?

Feel free to join us on this second edition of the CENIDE Career Day!


When? January 23rd, 2024

Where? NETZ seminarroom 2.42, Campus Duisburg

Who? Early Career Researcher from CENIDE


This time we invited not only experts from industry, but also from academia who will talk about their career paths and their decisions along the way.

Additionally we will introduce the job of a Science Manager to you and what other support options are available from the UDE. The GC Plus and the ABZ will give you insights in their work and what kind of workshops and events they offer.
