Doctoral Careers Event: Open invitation to colleagues in Academia and Industry

Would you like to share your career experiences with a range of postgraduate researchers?

We would welcome your participation in a short afternoon question and answer networking session with a group of researchers from all disciplines who have been taking a careers management module as part of their research degree. 2.30 p.m. – 3.45pm December 10th, CPD Suite, Central Teaching Laboratories (formerly known as the Graduate School Suite). There will be tea and coffee. Go here for directions.

Doctoral students at the University of Liverpool are high academic performers contributing to world class research while gaining a PhD. At the end of their studies they need to find a job. Many find employment in the research sector and just as many find employment elsewhere either here or overseas.  This question and answer session will allow them to quiz academics and those in other professions on how they need to prepare to get into a career in this increasingly competitive employment market.

You can help doctoral researchers become researcher professionals!

 All you need to do is discuss your own career experience at our career management Skills Course. You don’t need to prepare anything just come along and talk about your experiences and any tips you have on improving researcher’s employability. If you would you like to participate in this networking event please get in touch with PGR Development by emailing me Dr Richard Hinchcliffe, rjh@liv.ac.uk To see PGR Development’s online career resources for research students go here: http://pcwww.liv.ac.uk/~gssp/CareerResources/introduction.html If you cannot make this date we will be having further sessions on 18th March or 3rd June 2013
