For the career-focused courses 'Career Orientation' NWO-I expects an investment from you in the form of vacation leave, see also IR-8.3.4 Grounds for extension of employment of a researcher in training.

NWO-I invites PhDs for the training courses stated above at a certain point in their PhD trajectory, in agreement with the P&O department of their institute. However, if your training needs differ from the offered courses, then please contact your P&O department. 

Participation postdocs

Although the training courses have primarily been developed for PhDs, NWO-I postdocs are nevertheless welcome to take part. If a postdoc is interested in one of the training courses stated above, then he or she can make this known to the P&O department of your institute.
