Career Stories

We continually 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 read case stories 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 four case stories about life after the PhD for four AU alumni and specifically you can read the 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?”.
