What comes after a PhD?

PhD students and young postdocs from all centres of the PRBB will have the opportunity to learn from first hand about some of the alternative career paths that lay in front of them.

Next Friday June 27th the Professional Guidance in Science day will take place. This is an initiative from the CRG PhD students, and it's goal is to offer the young researchers of the PRBB an overview of career options in science different to the usual one of continuing in academic research.

During the whole day (from 9 am to 5 pm) we will have speakers from different fields such as science communication, technology transfer and companies. We will allocate a great deal of the time to informal discussions and information exchange between the speakers and the young researchers.

Each speaker will give a short 30 min presentation followed by 10 minutes of questions. The presentations will focus on their experience: the training they've received and their professional trajectory up to the point where they are now, referring also what their job consists of, the ups and downs, required skills, the challenges they’ve been faced with and also career possibilities.
