After your PhD

After your PhD

Obtaining your PhD degree will give you an excellent opening for a scientific position at a university or a job in industry.

Scientific career
After a PhD program, many scientists choose a postdoctoral period, often in another country or at another university. This period covers several years. It’s an opportunity to broaden and deepen your research skills and research area. The TU/e also offers (international) postdoctoral researchers the opportunity to increase their research experience.

After a postdoctoral period TU/e encourages talented scientists to develop into assistant professors and associate professors. Very successful university associate professors can take the step to a professors' position, at the TU/e or another university.
