  • WHEN: October 19-20, 2019
  • WHERE: NYU School of Medicine, New York, NY


What Can You Be with a PhD? (WCUB) is the largest PhD career symposium in the country. The symposium has 40 different career path sessions and professional development workshops featuring over 100 speakers over the course of two days.

WCUB is hosted biennially by NYU School of Medicine with the support of a consortium of 11 other universities and research institutions around the New York City metropolitan area. This year we have partnered with Nature Career and will feature 11 exhibitors from companies from different industries that hire doctorates.

This is a unique opportunity for graduate students and postdocs to learn about the breadth of career paths for doctorates and an amazing place to network with the next generation of scientists.


EURAXESS North America participated in the Symposium with an exhibit table as well as with a session entitled 'European Funding Opportunities for Creative Minds from All Over the World', which took place on Sunday, 20 October between 10-11:30 AM. 

Hundreds of students, PhDs, and postdocs passed by our booth to learn more about what kind of fellowships, grants and job vacancies are available for them in research, science, innovation, and technology.
