New for 2017! This exciting one-day conference is prompted by a growing mutual enthusiasm for interaction between research staff/DPhil students across the University and employers seeking analytical minds and research-related experience.
Our aim is to build understanding of trends in key employment sectors, the skills sought by each, and of the steps involved in transitioning from academia, or into the interface 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 have 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 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.
This event is aimed at late stage DPhil students and research staff.
Places are limited so please book promptly via CareerConnect or calling the Careers Service reception, 01865 274646
