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?
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?
Date & Time: Wed 26 October, 9.00am-5.00pm
Location: University House, ANU
