Event description

Description

What will you do with your PhD? What are you hoping for in your future career? What might you do during your studies to put yourself in the best position once you finish?

This new conference will look at careers in the Academy, but will also explore other avenues, recognising that many of us will need to apply our skills in fulfilling and interesting work beyond Academia.

Whatever stage you are at with your studies, this one day conference is a unique opportunity to:

- Hear from a range of speakers who have PhDs and are now working in Academia or in other professions, who will share their up to date experience

- Access practical help, resources and advice on a wide range of opportunities and career paths, through talks, panels, hands on exercises and discussions

- Find out about ongoing help and support for the future

- Reflect on the skill-set you are developing and the value of those skills in a wide range of fields.

Lunch, refreshments and a closing session with wine and nibbles will be included.

Researching our Futures has been designed based on feedback from Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences Post-graduate Researchers on what you would like to hear about. The event will include speakers from:

· Academia – research and teaching

· Education

· Research and consultancy

· Voluntary sector

· Media, journalism, publishing and writing

· Museums, heritage and culture

· Public Sector

· Creative practice and freelancing
