Career orientation for PhD candidates and post-docs

The training Career Orientation motivates you to think about your next step.

Introduction to grant writing

How do you get your grant proposal noticed in the face of so much competition? When it comes down to it, a grant proposal is simply a quotation. It should offer a solution to an existing societal or scientific problem. Your proposal should focus on the essence (your aim) and on the quality of the project deliverables. The best grant-writing strategy is to ‘say more with less’.

Mapping out your road as a science professional

How do you choose your future career as a PhD graduate? The options may be far more extensive than you imagine, especially in today’s world. So what will determine your decision? Your knowledge, your capabilities, opportunities that just happen to arise?

Professional Peer Consultation

Academic life is often complicated. How do you keep following your own ideas while balancing the conflicting demands of other relevant parties in your field (colleagues, superiors, students, funders, etc.)?

Scientific writing in English

Do you have little or no trouble reading specialist literature in English, but do you find writing your own English-language articles to be a tall order? This course offers you a step-by-step approach to improving your own article.

Working Soft for Scientists

Working hard is the norm in the academic world. Competition and the ‘publish or perish’’ mentality result in a stressful environment. It is against this background that Claartje van Sijl developed the innovative training programme Working Soft® for Scientists. The programme offers an effective combination of burnout prevention and career coaching.
