The 18th edition of the Afstudeerbeurs, organized by the Ghent University Association, will be a three-day online event - from 29 to 31 March 2021.

The Afstudeerbeurs consists of 5 components taking place at the same time: the general job market, the interuniversity Job Market for Young Researchers, the Tech Lane Ghent Science Park Corner, the North Sea Port Corner and the education and further studies fair.

The general job market brings together companies that recruit broadly – from professional BA's to PhD students and postdoctoral fellows from all academic disciplines and programmes offered by the partner institutions of Ghent University Association.

The Tech Lane Ghent Science Park Corner/North Sea Port Corner, this corner provides room to companies located in the high-tech science park and companies located in the port and canal zone of Ghent that wish to attract bachelor / master and young researchers (PhD students and postdoctoral researchers).

The interuniversity Job Market for Young Researchers brings together companies and organisations that are interested in hiring PhDs and postdocs from Ghent University, KU Leuven, VUB, the University of Antwerp and UHasselt. Participating companies are given the opportunity to reach out to specific target groups.

The international job offer will be integrated in the virtual company booths on the general job market/the interuniversity Job Market for Young Researchers/ the Tech Lane Corner and the North Sea Port Corner.

When registering, companies should clearly indicate whether or not they are interested in recruiting PhD’s and postdoctoral researchers.
