Doctoral candidates and postdocs will face at some point the question of how to shape their career after the doctoral and in the postdoctoral phase. For career paths outside academia, there is often a lack of ideas and role models. Yet there are plenty of possibilities! This gap is to be closed by the Career Evening „PhD – What´s next?“ on 26 November 2019. At this event, natural scientists who work in fields outside academia are going to talk about their current job and how they managed to pursue their individual career paths.

First, an introductory input “Goodbye Academia – How to access the job market“ by Dr. Lisa Steinhauser awaits you. This will be followed by a panel discussion with personal testimonials from natural scientists who work in fields outside academia. They are going to talk about their current job and how they managed to find and pursue their individual career paths. Afterwards, there will be a get-together with drinks and snacks. You will have the opportunity to get in touch with the panel speakers, who made their way into occupations in business and industry, research management and the public sector.

The Career Evening „PhD – What´s next?“ is free of charge and open to everybody. To make it easier to plan our event, we would like to know how many participants we should expect. Please register for the event using the registration form until 20.11.19.
