How to get the most out of your PhD: A career switch to industry

 

Are you wondering what it is like to have a career in industry, but you don’t know what to expect? Do you want to know what investments you can make and which skills you should develop during your PhD to increase your chances of a career outside academia? Then sign up for this seminar!

The seminar will start off with a presentation by Jeffrey Glennon. After his PhD, he switched from working in academia to the pharmaceutical industry. After nine years in industry, he returned to academia, where he is currently working at the Department of Cognitive Neuroscience of the Donders Institute. Therefore, he has lots of experience with what you can expect from a career outside academia. If you are interested in entering industry, he can give you lot’s of tips!

The second part of the seminar will be given by Richard Janssen from Galápagos, a clinical stage biotech company focused on developing novel mode of action medicines. He can give you insights into what industry expects from you.

Lastly, Judith van Dongen – van den Broek, will tell you more about her experiences with the ‘Professional PhD Program’. With this program, Promovendi Netwerk Nederland (PNN) wants to encourage the transition from PhD students from academia to industry.

On Tuesday 2 June, a second seminar will be held that will focus on how you can get the most out of your PhD when you are planning a career in academia, so stay tuned!
