The Life after the PhD - Opportunities and Challenges

The Event: There are many careers to choose from after completing a PhD, and often there are many ways to get there. An invited speaker and academics from NOCS will share their experiences and top tips to make the most out of your career. This event is aimed at all 'early career researchers' in the building - in particular postdocs, research fellows and teaching fellows, but also other members of staff who consider themselves as 'early career researchers'. We also invite PhD students in the final stages of their PhD who are thinking about whether to pursue a career in academia or an alternative to it.

Speakers: Dr Louise Firth (University of Plymouth) and Dr Anna Hickman (University of Southampton) are invited to speak about their experiences and share advise on how to pursue a career in academia. Other academic staff will be invited to give speed pitches and are available for questions.

Free coffee/ tea will be available after the session, to encourage social interaction and networking.

When: April 30th 2015, from 2pm to 4 pm, followed by a networking opportunity over coffee & tea.

Where: Seminar Room 104/13 at NOCS

Organised by: This event is hosted and organised by the NOCS Early Career Researchers network. NOCS Early Career Researchers include postdocs, research fellows, teaching fellows and other members of staff who consider themselves to be Early Career Researchers (such as early career lecturers or technicians). The intention of the NOCS ECR network is to be a platform for social interaction, knowledge exchange, sharing funding advice and career development experience. Activities include coffee meetings, social events, talks and workshops, as organized by group members.
