ARCHON is organizing a workshop for PhD students: How to get a postdoc. This workshop will be organized with the aim to offer PhD students information about what they can expect from a postdoc position and how to (successfully) apply for one. Topics such as different kinds of postdoc-positions, how to apply for positions and how to write an application will be discussed. The workshop will be given by research grants specialist Marco Last. 

Participants will receive individual feedback on their scientific proposals for a fictive individual research project, for example a VENI or a Rubicon. The committee will exist of representatives from the area of humanities and sociology.
