In this interactive panel discussion learn the value of skills acquired during your PhD and PostDoc, in transitioning to a career outside academia and it’s challenges
Our panelists will share information on non-academic career options available to scientists with a PhD. Trained by academics, you may not be aware of the many career paths open to you and we will highlight these through a panel of experts that have successfully transferred their knowledge and skills outside the lab. They will candidly share their experience and provide insights on what helped make a successful move.
Networking and refreshments will be provided (5.30-6pm) and we welcome questions for our panelists prior to the event via the booking form, for a robust and fun evening of discussion! Of course questions will be taken on the night also!
