Career after your PhD: Academia, industry or science management?

4 + 5 November 2021

As a PhD student you will start thinking about career opportunities and required skills at some point during your PhD: Stay in Academia or enter Industry? Jump into consulting or science management? Or even start your own business?

“Career after your PhD" offers doctoral researchers students the opportunity to meet scientists and people from different fields of industry, NGOs and science management, and discuss career options in a pleasant and informal atmosphere.

Our speakers will share their experience of doctoral study and advise on career opportunities after the PhD.

Please note: The number of places is limited, and the allocation of the available places follows the "first come, first served" principle.

Your registration is pending until the final confirmation from the organisers, which will be e-mailed to you after the end of the registration deadline on 11 October 2021.

This career event is a cooperation of MINGS, IMPRS-ESM, IMPRS-UFAST, SICSS and PIER Helmholtz Graduate School. The registration is open from 15 September - 11 October 2021.
