So, you’re finishing your PhD in a pandemic. What’s next?

Covid-19 presents a massive disruption to the academic workforce. PhD students and early career researchers are worried about their future career prospects inside academia and confused about their options outside the university walls. In this lecture, Inger Mewburn will share her team’s research on the post-PhD job market to:

  • enhance your understanding of the changed academic job market, analysing the effects of hiring freezes and travel restrictions.
  • increase awareness of career opportunities in industry; which sectors are looking for research talent?
  • help you approach the non-academic job market with more confidence.
