What is the CARaDOC convention?

CARaDOC (Careers and Doctors) is an annual Career convention for PhD students, PhDs & Postdoctoral researchers of Université Paris-Saclay. CARaDOC will bring together PhD students, young researchers, and company representatives. 

CARaDOC is the successor of J-RED (Journée de Rencontre Entreprises-Doctorants) and is organized by PhD students from all over the University of Paris-Saclay. The new name reflects our desire to gather French and international PhD students and doctors together. It also reflects our goal to offer various insights to PhD students to prepare their careers no matter the path they would take between the private and public sectors.

Last year, under the J-RED, we hosted a successful job fair gathering 300 participants and 25 companies. Attendees will include companies, PhD students, and young researchers operating in applied mathematics, physics, biotechnology, data visualization, big data, finances, etc. Last year's event hosted companies leaders in their fields, including INRIA, ONERA, CEA, Safran, Thales, BearingPoint, EDF, Schlumberger, Airthium, and many more, from big companies to start-ups .
