We try to ensure that you, as a postdoc, have the opportunity to flourish – both in your research field and in your personal development. As such, the University offers plenty of opportunities to take part in internal training programmes .

After your postdoc period, you will embark upon the next step in your career. A career in academia is not a given for everyone, so it is important that you start thinking about your next step in good time. Here in Leiden, you can make use of the University’s professional career guidance services  and coaching, for which you will receive a personal invitation via e-mail. These support services are free of charge for postdocs. 

Discuss your options with your supervisor, and don’t be shy! Leiden University has a responsibility to contribute towards your development.
