NB: participants from Germany and Luxembourg are subject to a different schedule. Please refer to contacts in your institutions (see 'Call for applications').


About the program

Are you currently doing a PhD in France, Germany or Luxembourg or are in the framework of a joint program with these three countries? Have you just obtained your PhD and are you looking for a job in one of these three countries after your PhD?

Be part of this new online edition of “PhD, what comes next?”, the cross-border career workshop for PhD candidates that will be organized on 8th-10th December by ABG, the French-German University, the Luxembourg National Research Funds (FNR), the Luxembourg Institute of Health (LIH), the Luxembourg Institute for Socio-Economic Research (LISER), the Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST), the University of Luxembourg, the Saarland University and the University of Trier.

It’s the perfect opportunity to (finally) take  some time to think about your professional identity, your wishes, to understand the recruitment process and recruiters’ expectations in different countries, to discover a new career path and develop your network by meeting professionals…



The seminar is open to:

  • PhD candidates from all fields and all nationalities, doing their doctorate in France, Germany or Luxembourg (PhD candidates doing a joint PhD with one of the three countries or doing an industrial PhD are eligible)
  • PhD holders who are unemployed or on a short term contract and who graduated less than 6 months before the start of the workshop

The participants must be motivated to explore the opportunities outside academia and have a good level of English (at least B2)

Priority is given to advanced PhD candidates (i.e. from late 2nd year of their PhD onwards).
