AU Career Destinations

What do PhDs do after graduation?

We continually keep an eye out for where AU PhDs and junior researchers go after completing their degree/position and we seek to stay in contact with PhD alumni in the industry so that we can pass on valuable insight and inspire you as regards job opportunities, career paths, job tasks, work-life balance and much more. 

On these pages you can get an overview of where PhDs from AU go, you can read career portraits and get first-hand insight from PhDs and junior researchers with different backgrounds working in the industry. 

In the right column you can learn more about our Facebook initiative AU PhDs at Work. You can also read a collection of career portraits of former PhD students from predominantly Health at Aarhus University, which seeks to answer one of the big questions for PhD students,“what do PhDs actually do?”. Finally you can get insights into statistics about the direction that PhD students from Arts, Health and BSS take once they have finished their PhD.
