Event description

Description

Until recently it was not common for PhD candidates to pursue non-academic careers, but now it seems that over 60% of graduates leave academia on completion of the PhD. What are your ‘other’ career options? How do you go about researching the possibilities? Is it possible to make a living as an independant academic, doing research and teaching outside the university system?

This seminar will be presented by Associate Professor Inger Mewburn (The Thesis Whisperer) who created the famous Thesis Whisperer blog, which has had 4.3 million hits in the last five years and has 60,000 followers on email and social media.The blog is the most popular source of advice and a leading influencer for research supervisors and students in the world because it is grounded in scholarly practice in higher education research.
