The interuniversity Job Market for Young Researchers is thé talent acquisition hot spot for your company/organisation. Join the 5 Flemish universities on 28 March 2024 in Flanders Expo Ghent to have in-person access to their PhD Talent Pool.

For several years now, Ghent University, KU Leuven, VUB, the University of Antwerp and UHasselt have been joining forces to improve the speed and quality of the transfer of PhD holders to the non-academic labour market. The Job Market for Young Researchers is their annual flagship event connecting PhD candidates and postdocs, who are keen to enter the labour market, and companies/organisations who are looking for the next generation of innovative and creative thinkers.

In the run-up to the live career fair – on Tuesdays and Thursdays between 6 February and 21 March 2024 (12 PM – 1PM) – companies/organisations can already reach out to PhD candidates and postdocs through (free of charge) online Career Lunches. After 28 March they will be given access to the (free of charge) CV book.

Take a look back at the 2023 edition of the Job Market, and register here for the 2024 edition of this unique interuniversity career event. Opt for the SILVER package.

For more information about the Career Lunches or in case of further questions, do not hesitate to reach out to Katrien Daemen-de Gelder.
