Our graduate and associate graduate students meet the external mentors starting the series of Career Coaching Days* (CCDs), taking place then once per term. Our program offers two sessions: career talks and a plenary discussion, both focussing on job profiles, successful careers and their development, networking and work/life balance. We intend to match mentors with mentees in a friendly, not too formal atmosphere as well. The on-job expertise will accompany the students in all aspects of their career development.

*compulsory activity for all associate graduate and graduate students 
*Our PIs are invited to join the day.
