Careers Conference for Researchers

Are you wondering what your next career move might be? Keen to find out which employers and sectors beyond academia value the skills you have developed as an early career researcher? Curious to know how other researchers have applied their expertise in non-academic contexts?

Our fourth annual Careers Conference for Researchers offers research staff and 3rd/4th year DPhil students the opportunity to explore a range of rewarding career pathways. You will hear PhD holders and former academic researchers speak frankly about their daily working lives in a variety of sectors. A networking lunch with employers who are actively seeking research-trained applicants gives further scope for investigating options for the future. Interactive workshops in the afternoon will help you identify skills and strategies for optimising your career preparedness, and our closing drinks provide a further chance for conversations with recruiters and former researchers.
