Where can you start working after obtaining your PhD? If you are looking for opportunities outside academia, there are different possibilities. One of them is working for an international company like Janssen, Pharmaceutical Companies or Johnson and Johnson (J&J).  To find out if this is something you would like to do, we invite you for a company visit to J&J in Beerse.

The Doctoral School for Health and Life Sciences and the Biomedical Sciences program of Hasselt University organize a visit to J&J in Beerse in collaboration with SEE/Continéo. During this visit you will receive an answer to questions such as: Which projects are they working on at J&J? What are the different functions within this company? Which profiles are they hiring? Are there any vacancies at the moment? ....

The visit is for free for PhD students and postdocs. We will organize a bus which will bring you from campus Diepenbeek to Beerse and vice versa.
