Aimed at DPhils and Early Career Researchers.
The aim of this one-day conference is to build researchers’ understanding of trends in key employment sectors, the skills and aptitudes sought in each and the steps involved in transitioning from academia, or into different interfaces between academia, applied and/or policy work.
We will hear from employees who moved from a DPhil or research position into jobs that make the most of their research training and experience, and from employers. There will be plenty of time to ask questions.
Panel sessions will cover the following broad areas:
- Specialist Consulting
- Science R&D, Start-Ups and Biotech
- Data Analytics
- Research, Knowledge Exchange and Impact-related roles
- Marketing yourself effectively for freelancing or a portfolio career
Over a networking lunch, you will meet with employers actively seeking skills gained during a doctorate or early research career.
