Steer your Career

The DCVA partners invest in you. You contribute to the development of the cardiovascular field.
The Dutch CardioVascular Alliance (DCVA) has the ambition to reduce the burden of cardiovascular disease by 25% in 2030. This requires high quality and innovative research and translation of research results into optimal care for everyone. We need professionals that participate in national and international research consortia and who will hold strategic positions in academia or in the private sector.

Who can particpate?
Are you a senior PhD student or recently graduated and wonder about your employability and next career move? Then we are looking for you! You will participate in a 6-day program together with peers from the cardiovascular field who have the same questions. We offer you unique one-on-one coaching to provide tailored career advice. You will learn how to present yourself with an elevator pitch and how to create an impeccable CV and motivation letter. We will help you understand the pillars of successful grant writing and show you how to find funding opportunities. You will connect to professionals inside and outside academia to broaden your network to obtain individualized career advice. In short, the DCVA Steer your Career Training Program supports young scientists to take control over their careers!
