Seminar: Planning a Post-doc

Welcome to a seminar with focus on how and where to apply for funding to go on a post-doc!

  • Where should I go?
  • How do I fund it?
  • Do I need to choose between family and work?
  • How much can I earn - financially? Strategically? In published papers?

Date and venue: Tuesday 20 January 2015, Elite Hotel Ideon, Lund (room Tera)

Please sign up here before Friday 16 January 2015, kl 10.00 (for the fika-order to work!)

Who is welcome? 

We specifically welcome Phd-students who are in the end of their time, but also encourage those Phd-students in their early stages to come, and start the process of the next step. Young researchers and supervisors are also very welcome of course!

We welcome people from all faculties, and our invited speakers are instructed to talk about all the general conditions that apply. In the sign-up you will be asked to state your faculty-belonging, in order to assist the speakers with information on who is in the audience. We also welcome people from other universities than Lund University!
