Join us for a festival of ideas, skills and wisdom. Asking the big question, what next? What will you do when your doctorate is done?
ANU Research Training team invites you to join us for a day we call PhD to Present now in its third year. We have invited a wide range of academics and professionals in a range of fields to share their experience and expertise. In a competitive academic job market, what skills and attributes do academic employers want from you? Is it all about the long research CV, or do other things matter? Around 60% of research students now exit the academy when they finish their PhD. What sort of skills do these employers want?
