Have you as a PhD-student ever asked yourself what possibilities do I have as a PhD in the labor market outside of the university? Then this is an excellent opportunity to get updated!
Who knows, maybe you'll meet a future employer!
"Career outside university for PhD:s" day October 22
Place: Undervisningshuset Ultuna - Lecture hall J
Welcome to participate in a seminar hosted by the research schools “Ecology its Basics and Applications” , "Organism Biology" and “Focus on Soils and Water”!
The day will offer presentations by invited speakers from authorities, non-governmental organizations and private companies as well as discussions about the PhD-education and a poster session. We end the day with a panel discussion about the PhD education and working outside the university as a PhD. This activity is arranged to create an opportunity for PhD-students to meet with representatives of important stakeholders and potential future employers.
Invited speakers will share their points of view on several questions such as:
- What qualities of a PhD do you as an employer most value?
- What knowledge do you want an employed PhD to have?
- What questions and research are the most important?
- Personal experience and reflections.
Between the presentations there will be time for a poster session where stakeholders and students can mingle and discuss about research and work.
If you don’t have time to make a new poster: Bring along that old one you used at a conference or the department symposium!
