Transition from PhD to Postdoc

PhD-students in Denmark from all universities and fields of study are invited to a one-day seminar about career planning and the transition from PhD to postdoc.
The seminar is organized by the Det Unge Akademi (The Young Academy) who would like to share our experience as junior researchers with PhD-students in an interdiscipli-nary forum. It is our impression that many PhD-students can benefit from events orga-nized outside of their PhD-schools that focus on career advice across different disci-plines.
